Tips for writing good single choice questions
- The question instruction should be meaningful and state a specific problem that focuses on the learning objective.
- Do not use negative phrases unless absolutely necessary. They confuse the learners. Use them only when the learning objective requires it. And, emphasize it with italics.
- A good question instruction should ideally be a question and not a partial statement.
- The answer options should be credible. The incorrect options should act as plausible distractors. If the alternatives are not reasonable, then the correct answer is evident. You do not want the learners to be able to guess it easy.
- Make sure all the options are parallel, of similar length and have consistent grammar.
- Avoid using alternatives like ‘all of the above and ‘none of the above’.
