Herwin, Herwin; Pristiwaluyo, Triyanto; Ruslan, Ruslan; Dahalan, Shakila Che – Cypriot Journal of Educational Sciences, 2022
The application of multiple-choice tests often does not consider the scoring technique and the number of choices. The study aims at describing the effect of the scoring technique and numerous options towards the reliability of multiple-choice objective tests on social subjects in elementary school. The study is quantitative research with…

Rovšek, Barbara – Physics Teacher, 2021
At a conference on educational physics, someone described a series of multiple-choice problems to test students' ideas about various mechanical phenomena. One of the problems questioned students' conceptions about the shape of the Earth's orbit in the solar system. The question was as follows: "Which of the following schematic illustrations…

Douglas-Morris, Jan; Ritchie, Helen; Willis, Catherine; Reed, Darren – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Multiple-choice (MC) anatomy "spot-tests" (identification-based assessments on tagged cadaveric specimens) offer a practical alternative to traditional free-response (FR) spot-tests. Conversion of the two spot-tests in an upper limb musculoskeletal anatomy unit of study from FR to a novel MC format, where one of five tagged structures on…

Wind, Stefanie A.; Ge, Yuan – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2021
Practical constraints in rater-mediated assessments limit the availability of complete data. Instead, most scoring procedures include one or two ratings for each performance, with overlapping performances across raters or linking sets of multiple-choice items to facilitate model estimation. These incomplete scoring designs present challenges for…

Volfson, Alexander; Eshach, Haim; Ben-Abu, Yuval – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2021
Science knowledge is reflected in mental models that students tend to form when dealing with science phenomena. One way to identify students' mental models about scientific concepts is the use of diagnostic tests (inventories). Even though several statistical approaches and tools intended for the analysis of such inventories' results exist in the…

Tabuena, Almighty C.; Morales, Glinore S. – Online Submission, 2021
This study identified and annotated appropriate test items using the multiple-choice test item format in the cognitive domain of the taxonomy of educational objectives in assessing and evaluating musical learning through the descriptive-developmental research design. This assessment approach is one of the key skills needed of Music teachers to…

Jin, Kuan-Yu; Siu, Wai-Lok; Huang, Xiaoting – Journal of Educational Measurement, 2022
Multiple-choice (MC) items are widely used in educational tests. Distractor analysis, an important procedure for checking the utility of response options within an MC item, can be readily implemented in the framework of item response theory (IRT). Although random guessing is a popular behavior of test-takers when answering MC items, none of the…

Falcão, Filipe; Costa, Patrício; Pêgo, José M. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2022
Background: Current demand for multiple-choice questions (MCQs) in medical assessment is greater than the supply. Consequently, an urgency for new item development methods arises. Automatic Item Generation (AIG) promises to overcome this burden, generating calibrated items based on the work of computer algorithms. Despite the promising scenario,…

Wood, Eileen; Klausz, Noah; MacNeil, Stephen – Innovative Higher Education, 2022
Learning gains associated with multiple-choice testing formats that provide immediate feedback (e.g., IFAT®) are often greater than those for typical single-choice delayed feedback formats (e.g. Scantron®). Immediate feedback formats also typically permit part marks unlike delayed feedback formats. The present study contrasted IFAT® with a new…

Núñez-Peña, María Isabel; Bono, Roser – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2021
We examined the relationships between math anxiety, perfectionism and academic achievement in undergraduates enrolled in a course with high mathematical content. Participants were 251 students who completed math anxiety and perfectionism questionnaires, and whose academic achievement was measured via a multiple-choice examination. The number of…

Dave, Neisarg; Bakes, Riley; Pursel, Barton; Giles, C. Lee – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2021
We investigate encoder-decoder GRU networks with attention mechanism for solving a diverse array of elementary math problems with mathematical symbolic structures. We quantitatively measure performances of recurrent models on a given question type using a test set of unseen problems with a binary scoring and partial credit system. From our…

Yilmaz, Erdi Okan; Toker, Türker – International Journal of Psychology and Educational Studies, 2022
This study examines the online assessment-evaluation activities in distance education processes. The effects of different online exam application styles considering the online assessment-evaluation in distance education processes, including all programs of a higher education institution, were documented. The population for online…

Primor, Liron; Yeari, Menahem; Katzir, Tami – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Multiple text integration is a challenging task, but it is essential for studying and developing digital literacy, and is therefore critical to promote among students. However, the conditions that may support multiple text integration for different reader profiles have not been thoroughly studied. Therefore, based on single text research, the…

Lazenby, Katherine; Balabanoff, Morgan E.; Becker, Nicole M.; Moon, Alena; Barbera, Jack – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
Identifying effective methods of assessment and developing robust assessments are key areas of research in chemistry education. This research is needed to evaluate instructional innovations and curricular reform. In this primer, we advocate for the use of a type of assessment, ordered multiple-choice (OMC), across postsecondary chemistry. OMC…

Kim, Yongnam – Journal of Educational Measurement, 2020
Does reviewing previous answers during multiple-choice exams help examinees increase their final score? This article formalizes the question using a rigorous causal framework, the potential outcomes framework. Viewing examinees' reviewing status as a treatment and their final score as an outcome, the article first explains the challenges of…
