Riza Mae A. DumaranDate of Submission: November 5, 2019Educ 107 TTh 9:00 AM – 10:30 AMActivity Sheet No. 52INVENTORY OF GUIDELINES IN MAKING MULTIPLE CHOICE TYPE FORMAT1. The stem of the item should clearly formulate problem. Include as much of the item as possible, keepingthe response options as short as possible, however, include only the material needed to make theproblem clear and specific. Be concise - don’t add extraneous information (Kubiszyn, 2003).2. Be sure that there is one and only one correct or clearly best answer (Kubiszyn, 2003).3. Be sure wrong answer choices (distractors) are plausible. Eliminate unintentional grammatical clues andkeep the length and form of all the answer choices equal. Rotate the position of the correct answer formitem to item randomly (Kubiszyn, 2003).4. Use negative questions or statements only if the knowledge being tested requires it. In most cases it ismore important for the student to know what a specific item of information is rather than what it is not(Kubiszyn, 2003).5. Include from three to five options (two to four distractors plus one correct answer) to optimize testing forknowledge rather than encouraging guessing. It is not necessary to provide additional distractors foreach item. This usually leads to poor constructed distractors that add nothing to test validity andreliability (Kubiszyn, 2003).
