CETL: MCQ Workshop

CETL: MCQ Workshop

MCQ examinations are often seen as a concession to modern-day realities of universities – a way of assessing large numbers of students, reliably, and without the hassle of hands-on marking. If the result is the reduction of our assessments to isolated fact recall, with a consequent loss of validity for the purpose of the assessment, then this is far too high a price to pay. It also greatly underestimates the potential of the ‘single best answer’ MCQ form to assess higher levels of thinking, reasoning and judgement. MCQs are not easy to write, but this short workshop aims to show that the effort required to write scenario-based, ‘higher order’ MCQs is well worth the benefits of broad sampling and automated marking, without having to sacrifice validity. Participants will also be guided through how to evaluate the quality of MCQs, including the use of relatively simple statistical data.
