1 A content-free test Designing multiple-choice questions This ‘ content free test ’ was published by Roger Lewis in the ’ 80s. He can ’ t remember where the questions came from. I ’ ve added some discussion of the ‘ right ’ answers in the slide sequence which follows…

2 A content-free test A content-free test!  Please work on your own.  Try out your exam technique to pick the most likely option for each of the eight questions.  Then try to work out why you made your selection.  If you feel you can make sense of the questions, please seek help!

3 A content-free test Please jot down numbers

5 A content-free test 2: Antigrottification occurs: Aon spring mornings. Bon summer evenings provided there is no rain before dusk. Con autumn afternoons. Don winter nights.

6 A content-free test 3: Lurkies suffer from trangitis because: Atheir prads are always underdeveloped. Ball their brizes are horizontal. Ctheir curnpieces are usually imperfect. Dnone of their dringoes can ever adapt.

11 A content-free test 8: Which of these is the correct answer? ABCDABCD

12 A content-free test 1: The usual function of grunge prowkers is to remove: Agrunges. Bsnarts. Ctrigs. Dgrods. Don ’ t include a word from the stem in one of the options, or it will make people think it is the correct option.

13 A content-free test 2: Antigrottification occurs: Aon spring mornings. Bon summer evenings provided there is no rain before dusk. Con autumn afternoons. Don winter nights. This option looks more probable, because it is longer, and because it is the only one which is qualified.

14 A content-free test 3: Lurkies suffer from trangitis because: Atheir prads are always underdeveloped. Ball their brizes are horizontal. Ctheir curnpieces are usually imperfect. Dnone of their dringoes can ever adapt. Don ’ t mix indefinites with definites – indefinites are more likely to be correct. (Indefinites: usually, sometimes, often, seldom…; Definites: all, never, none, and so on)

15 A content-free test 4: Non-responsive frattling is usually found in an: Agringle. Bjanket. Ckloppie. Duckerpod. Don ’ t allow the indefinite article ( ‘ an ’ ) to give away the right answer.

16 A content-free test 5: Which are exception s to the law of lompicality? AThe miltrip and the nattercup. BThe bifid pantrip. CThe common queeter. DThe flanged ozzer. Don ’ t ask for something plural, then make just one option plural.

17 A content-free test 6: Which must be present for parbling to take place? APhlot and runge. BRunge. CStuke and runge. DRunge and trake. It it ’ s not this option, it can ’ t be any of them (one way of thinking about it!!)

18 A content-free test 7: One common disorder of an overspragged uckerpod is: Acopious vezzling. Bintermittent weggerment. Cnon-responsive frattling. Duneven yerkation. Be careful about overlapping questions! Candidates should look at both questions, and get maximum thinking.

19 A content-free test 8: Which of these is the correct answer? ABCDABCD There was a pattern. ‘ D ’ is due to come up again.

20 A content-free test Correct answers: 1A1A 2B2B 3C3C 4D4D 5A5A 6B6B 7C7C 8D8D
