Multiple-Choice Testing

Multiple-choice testing is an assessment style that structures tests in such style that students must select an answer from multiple options. For example, a math multiple choice test might give the following possible answers for "What is 15 divided by 3?": (a) 2, (b) 3, (c) 4, (d) 5. While students may select any answer, only answer "d" will yield credit. This type of test is commonly seen on standardized exams, such as high school-exit or college-entrance exams.
