Let me ask you a question.
When you were in college, would you rather that your final exam for a class was...
A. An Essay Test B. A Multiple Choice Test
If you are like most people, you would prefer to take a multiple choice test. If I asked you why, your answer would be something like...
- "Because you know the answer is already out there. All you have to do is figure out which one it is." - "It's easier. There's not a lot of thinking involved in a multiple choice test. You don't have to know the answer, you just have to recognize it." - "You don't have to come up with the answer."
Here's another question.
How do you increase the difficulty of a multiple choice test?
Well, there are two things that you can do.
