Developing Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) and Tests



Participants will learn the ins and outs of writing multiple-choice questions while learning about common flaws in questions and how to correct them. Participants will better understand how the test question “performance” is evaluated, and the basics of assessment item complexity.

After the webinar, participants will be able to:

∙ Understand principles of writing good MCQs, and how to avoid common flaws

∙ Create good MCQs on hematologic topics and edit to “fix” flaws

∙ Understand psychometric measures for test items, and the basics of item complexity
