By putting careful attention into the way you develop test questions you can get useful results to help assess student understanding. For multiple choice, true/false, and matching questions some tips to help this process are: write clearly worded instructions, avoid using negations and double/triple negations as they are confusing, don't leave clues in the question format such as varying answer lengths or patterns to the correct answers e.g. c.) c.) c.). These are some quick tips from the chapters we were covering from Popham.
