Multiple-choice questions are everywhere in learning, but they can be fiendishly difficult to write well. Nobody is doing a better job than Patti of distilling out research-based principles for writing well, and turning them into practical, actionable guidelines. Highly recommended.

This training gave me insight into the many factors involved in creating effective multiple-choice questions. It has prepared me to better advise instructors on whether multiple-choice questions are the best tool, and how they can be crafted to generate reliable, valid data. Course participant contributions created a robust conversation and led to many insights.

I joined Patti’s course this July and loved it! Her content matches her facilitation; both excellent. I would totally recommend it.

The weekly live sessions opened my mind and upped my question-writing game. Patti knows her topic and added the wow factor that I was looking for by offering real-time feedback to participants. Comments from other participants helped me see different perspectives. I strongly recommend this course for anybody who must create multiple-choice question learning assessments.

Patti’s course on writing assessments has been invaluable in helping me write effective, credible assessments for my online learning courses and assessments. There is a wealth of well-researched detail about what exactly goes into writing an effective multiple-choice question and how these questions relate to the bigger picture of effective learning. I strongly recommend this course to anyone who wants to make their learning more effective as well as anyone who needs to write effective assessments.
