Are Multiple-Choice Questions Killing Critical Thinking Skills?
Feb 07, 2023
System-graded multiple-choice questions are easy to write and build. But not all situations have right and wrong answers. In this session, you’ll learn to distinguish when the ability to grade and track is important—and when it gets in the way of doing something instructionally valuable. You’ll get inspiration from real-life examples showing how learners can explore a concept and try it out for themselves in creative ways. You’ll even get the chance to consider some stereotypical multiple-choice questions and brainstorm ways to transform them into practice activities that are more helpful, relevant, and engaging. You’ll walk away with tons of ideas, along with templates to help you plan out your own interactions.
