Constructing Effective & Reliable Multiple-Choice Tests

Workshop participants will learn how to construct multiple-choice questions that avoid common pitfalls that unintentionally mislead learners or fail to assess meaningful learning.  Use of test-item analyses to evaluate the reliability of multiple-choice tests will also be explained.  Participants will discuss and evaluate example questions and test-item data and are encouraged to bring their own examples to work with during the workshop.
Facilitator: Jay Parkes, Professor, Educational Psychology
