Designing Better Multiple-Choice Exam Questions

This is a past event.

Multiple-choice questions often get a bad reputation because they are perceived as less cognitively challenging and authentic than other types of assessments. In this 45-minute workshop, we will discuss how to tackle those design challenges to create good multiple-choice questions. Participants will practice composing questions. Feel free to bring a quiz or exam to revise. We will conclude this session with a brief overview of Canvas exam analytics, which can be used to identify test questions to redesign or concepts to review.

As a result of completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the pros and cons of using multiple-choice questions
  • Begin to compose clear, appropriately challenging multiple-choice exam questions
  • Explain how exam analytics can be used as an instructional tool

This is an introductory-level workshop and counts toward the Achievement in Pedagogy Badge.
