Writing Multiple Choice Questions that Demand Critical Thinking: A Workshop

Writing Multiple Choice Questions that Demand Critical Thinking: A Workshop

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 - 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm

Facilitators: Abbylynn Helgevold (Philosophy & World Religions) & Susan Hill (CETL)

Many of us use multiple-choice questions in our exams: they are easy to grade, and can be very helpful in determining what students know about course content and facts. They often seem less helpful in gauging students’ higher-level thinking skills. This workshop focuses on how we can write multiple-choice questions that engage more complex thinking. First, we’ll look at some strategies and examples, and then we’ll take our own multiple choice questions and begin transforming them. It isn’t necessary, but do feel free to bring along examples of your multiple-choice questions!
