## Reflection: Systems Assessment 2: Mastery Test - Section 1: 3 Part Assessment

What makes a good multiple choice question?

A good multiple choice question....

1. Presents a definite problem which focuses on achievement on one of the learning outcomes. Read the standard or benchmark carefully to make sure the question targets that goal.

2. Should not contain irrelevant material or information in the question

3. Should not be a negatively stated question. Sometimes the learning objective requires it. Otherwise, negatively stated questions should be avoided

4. Should have incorrect options that are believable and based on common student errors. These incorrect options should be answers that students who did not achieve the learning objectives could choose, and students that have learned the objectives should ignore.

5. Should not contain any clues to the right answer. Clues to the right answer should not be in any of the other options either.

6. Should not have answers like "all or none of the above"

7. Should not be too tricky or "thorny".  Students will lose respect for assessments where there are just too many tricky questions.
