Multiple Choice exams
  • Multiple-version tests and exams are quite effective at preventing collaboration – the Registrar’s Office can manage 4 different versions
  • To create multiple versions, switch the order of answers and/or questions of the test, creating 4 different tests using the same questions and making it much more difficult for students to copy from one another
  • Multiple-version tests should be laid out in a pattern in the classroom in advance, ensuring that the same version is not within students’ viewing distance
  • To prevent students from switching the version of test they are writing, photocopying each version on different coloured paper makes it easy for invigilators to note a switch (it also makes it easy for students to identify which students are writing the same version however)
