1 Multiple-Choice (MC) I & II Commentary The table on pages 3–6 gives the name of each MC unit in italics, with the corresponding items next to it. It also lists the keyed response for each of the items and the common curriculum elements for each unit. The MC testpapers As in previous years, the MC subtest of the QCS Test consisted of two testpapers, each with 50 items that tested a broad range of common curriculum elements. The units embraced a range of areas relevant to the Queensland senior school curriculum, including English literature and grammar, pure and applied mathematics, civics and society, history and archaeology, art, pure and applied sciences (physics, technology, methodology, climatology, geology and architecture), and commerce and economics. Stimulus materials were presented in a broad range of modes, including prose, nonfiction, drama, poetry, personal reflection, cartoons, tables, graphs and diagrams. Units ranged across the verbal, quantitative and visual-spatial realms. The units that tested mainly verbal understandings included Unit 4 Public Relations , Unit 8 Split Infinitives , Unit 10 Time Out , Unit 13 Conclusive Proof , Unit 15 Generations , Unit 17 Ant’s House , Unit 20 Dead Poets Society and Unit 22 Parker .
