An Empirical Comparison of Three- and Four-Choice Items and Tests: Susceptibility to Testwiseness and Internal Consistency Reliability.
Rogers, W. Todd; Harley, Dwight
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v59 n2 p234-47 Apr 1999
Examined item-level and test-level characteristics for items in a high-stakes school-leaving mathematics examination. Results from 158 students show that the influence of testwiseness is lessened when three-option items are used. Tests of three-option items are at least equivalent to four-option item tests in terms of internal-consistency score reliability. (SLD)
