Lighter BS: How can we restore a reason renaissance (324* d) RE: BS: How can we restore a reason renaissance 08 Jan 21


Multiple-choice exams can be brutal - if the distinctions among the choices are subtle enough.

In my experience, however, a common method is to make one of the four choices intentionally ludicrous, and the other three distinct enough so that someone with only a vague notion of what's required has a good chance of guessing the answer.

But not even the hardest multiple-choice test (which, by the way, even some instructors call "multiple guess," as though that's the proper term) demands the organizational skills and clarity of thought required by essay questions.
