Introduction to Selected Response Questions

There are some misconceptions about MRQs. They are not necessarily more difficult
than MCQs; they are as hard or as easy as you choose to make them. There is no
need to indicate the number of correct options; this only encourages guessing. And
there is nothing wrong with making every option correct; in fact, prohibiting this
possibility reduces the reliability of MRQs.

Note that MCQs normally begin: “Which one
Which one
Which one

Which one of the

following..”, and MRQs usually begin: “Whi
Whi
Whi

Which
ch
ch

ch of the

following…”.

sequence can be an ordered list of numbers, chronological sequence or series of
events.
