Multiple-choice exams can measure a range of different types of knowledge and competencies, and the efficiencies gained from mass administering and scoring of such exams make them a popular assessment tool to use in your exam plans. A well-constructed multiple-choice exam will adequately differentiate examinees with high and low levels of knowledge and competencies; however, a poorly constructed multiple-choice exam will generate misleading results and adversely affect your hiring processes.

This one-day course will combine and cover the essential elements of multiple-choice item writing and editing; and interpreting and analyzing multiple-choice item analysis reports.

The first segment of this course will cover the multiple-choice test construction process to ensure that your recruitment assessments contain enough quality items that reliably measure the necessary knowledge and competencies of the job. The second segment will cover the use and interpretation of item analysis data to evaluate the quality and effectiveness of your multiple-choice items as well as the overall exam.

By the end of this training, you will learn about:

-The structure and terminology of a multiple-choice item.
-Basics and best practices of Item writing and editing.
-The key characteristics of a good test multiple-choice item.
-Common item flaws and how to avoid them.
-Exam construction using Job Domain/Construct Sampling.
-Single vs Multiple Pass-Point Considerations.
-Using item analysis to identify effective and problematic multiple-choice items
-Item Analysis terminology (item discrimination, point-biserial correlation, item difficulty, distractor analysis, classical test theory, statistical reliability, and other related statistical concepts).
