Fuhrman, Miriam
Journal of Geoscience Education, v44 n4 p379-84 Sep 1996
Discusses the advantages and disadvantages of multiple-choice tests, steps in developing good questions, and common pitfalls. Argues that carefully constructed multiple-choice questions can assess a wide variety of skills including higher-order thinking skills. Suggests that creating a good multiple-choice test starts with a description of the skills and knowledge to be tested in the form of written specifications. (Author/PVD)
