Are you using multiple choice questions to their full capacity?

We all know that multiple choice questions can be a powerful component of your assessment and pedagogical strategies. They can save time and support consistency in marking, They can be useful for piquing student interest; promoting classroom interaction (both in person and online!); and assessing prior, formative and even summative learning.

Is there a learning outcome or content that you are struggling to assess and wonder if a multiple choice question might work? Bring that outcome or content and the questions/approaches you have used in the past and let’s explore if and how a multiple-choice question might work.
