Here is a handy presentation on using multiple-choice assessment to prompt student learning (PDF) presented by Sawa Senzaki at CATL’s Using Multiple-Choice Assessments Well workshop. The presentation references the use of Scantron data, so here also is an example of the data an instructor receives from Scantron results.
Feel free also to check out this site for more examples of how to design Questions for Multiple-Choice Assessments: https://ctl.yale.edu/MultipleChoiceQuestions
If you missed the workshop, here is a copy of the questions we used to drive the conversation.
The 2018-19 Teaching and Learning Community will explore transparency in teaching and learning. Fellows will engage with scholarly research on the impact of transparency in course, outcome, and assignment design and consider how incorporating a transparent framework may promote equity in student learning and success. Fellows will make revisions to one course throughout the year while the learning community discusses the challenges of implementing transparent design. Look for the call mid-semester!
Stay tuned for more details!
