Graham Prior

10th August 2015

Multiple choice questions (MCQs) are a fundamental part of assessment for many subjects and opinion is often divided as to there usefulness in assessing students. Writing (good) MCQs isn't easy. They can be time consuming to develop and difficult to design well. They can often lead to guesswork and poorly designed MCQs often provide clues to encourage guesswork.
