Multiple selection

  1. 1. Multiple selection - is a form of assessment in which respondents are asked to select the best possible answer (or answers) out of the choices from a list. - is most frequently used in educational testing, in market research, and in elections, when a person chooses between multiple candidates, parties, or policies. - particularly popular in the United States - items of a multiple choice test are often colloquially referred to as “questions”, but this is a misnomer because many items are not phrased as questions. - can be presented as incomplete statements or mathematical equations - items are stored in an item blank Advantages - If item writers are well trained and items are quality assured, it can be a very effective assessment technique. - If students are instructed on the way in which the item format works and myths surrounding the tests are corrected, they will perform better on the test.
  2. 2. - require less time - more comprehensive evaluation of the candidate's extent of knowledge - greater efficiency - free-response items - a better measurement tool Disadvantages - limited types of knowledge - lower-order skills -multiple choice tests are often chosen, not because of the type of knowledge being assessed, but because they are more affordable for testing a large number of students - possible ambiguity in the examinee's interpretation of the item
  3. 3. - failing to interpret information - test-takers may attempt to guess rather than determine the correct answer - even if students have some knowledge of a question, they receive no credit for knowing that information if they select the wrong answer and the item is scored dichotomously - incapable of answering a particular question Examples 1.What is the capital of China? a. Beijing b.Cambodia c. Kabul d. Kuala lumpur
