Multiple-choice exams are an easy and effective way to assess student learning, as they are quick to grade, and they can be stored in databases for reuse. Most faculty use them for simple, fact-based questions, but MCQs can also be used to assess higher learning. In this workshop we will review the anatomy of multiple-choice questions, discuss the pitfalls of ambiguous questions and answers, and practice writing good MCQs. Participants are encouraged to bring 1-2 pages of course material to use as a basis for writing sample MCQs. This session will be led by Jennifer Moss, Associate Professor in Classical and Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures. This is a hands-on, in-person workshop.  Coffee and snacks will be provided.
