Multiple choice questions have long been used as a tool for assessment. However, they are criticised for only being a superficial level of assessment, and not testing the ability to analyse, debate and synthesise information. In this chapter we look at the advantages and disadvantages of using multiple choice questions in assessment, and identify ways in which this approach to assessment can be made more robust. We look at ways that multiple choice questions can be used to assess higher-level thinking skills, and some of the techniques to make this more effective. We also look at some of the common pitfalls of writing multiple choice questions and how these can be overcome.

There is often little guidance available on how to teach in universities, despite there being increasing pressure to raise teaching standards, as well as no official requirement for academics to have any specific teaching qualification in many countries. This invaluable book comprehensively addresses this issue, providing an overview of teaching in a business school that covers all stages of student learning.
