It helps the student develop a deeper understanding of the text and improves their ability to interpret and draw conclusions from it. By engaging in a close activity, the student can demonstrate their comprehension skills in a more interactive and comprehensive manner than a multiple-choice test.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    For a thirty-minute examination, which type of test will achieve both high reliability and greatest coverage of content and skill?

    • A.

      Completion

    • B.

      True/false

    • C.

      Multiple Choice

    • D.

      Essay

    Correct Answer
    D. Essay
    Explanation
    An essay test would achieve both high reliability and the greatest coverage of content and skill in a thirty-minute examination. This is because an essay allows students to demonstrate their understanding of a topic in depth, providing a comprehensive coverage of content. Additionally, essays can assess higher-order thinking skills such as analysis, synthesis, and evaluation, which further enhances the test's coverage of skills. While completion, true/false, and multiple-choice tests may be more efficient in terms of time, they may not provide the same level of depth and coverage as an essay test.
