Developing defensible multiple-choice questions to accompany classroom, online, or blended instruction is a skill that must be mastered for successful assesment. This issue provides guidance for writing well-written multiple-choice questions, and tips on how to avoid the most common mistakes. You will learn how to build different types of multiple-choice questions; reduce or eliminate the common language problems that make multiple-choice questions confusing or ambiguous; match the level of each multiple-choice question to the level of the learning objective; test your questions before using them with learners; and use question statistics to improve your questions once they are in use.
