Using multiple-choice format questions test your students’ knowledge of all potential answers since there could be more than one right answer. Giving a student a multiple choice question ensures they have a deeper understanding of the question being asked since they must know that an answer is CORRECT, not that just one answer is wrong.
If you choose multiple choice, there is no limit to the number of answers you provide. If you really want to test your students’ knowledge, you can subtract points for selecting an incorrect answer.
For example, say the question is, “What are the most common soccer formations?” and you choose “B, 4-5-2 formation.” Since this answer is incorrect, you can set it to deduct a set amount of points from the students’ scores.
