I couldn't come up with a better title than 'Multiple Choice Tests Suck' so I thought I would just be blunt.
I think this topic is important because too many people assume that the pitfalls of multiple choice exams are intuitive - well, they aren't. There are WAY TOO many teachers who still use multiple choice exams as their method of collecting summative data.
It's time that changed.
Here is an article that I wrote at the end of the last school year during final exams. If you can think of more reasons why we should never give a multiple choice test again, please comment.
