Multiple choice quizzes are one of the most effective ways to test learners on content. In this article, we’ll show you how to create multiple choice quizzes with iSpring QuizMaker in 8 easy steps.
What is a Multiple Choice Quiz?
A multiple choice quiz consists of two parts: a ‘stem’ and a set of possible responses. A stem can take the form of an actual question, phrase, incomplete sentence, or mathematical equation. For more advanced tests, it can comprise many elements, such as graphs, tables, case studies, detailed descriptions, or other relevant information. Quiz takers should choose the correct response from the options provided. There are two types of options: the correct or best choice, called the key, and other options called distractors.
People use multiple choice questions in a great number of areas, such as educational testing or market research. Check some multiple choice question tips from Vanderbilt University.
