Multiple-Choice Items (MCQs)

NOTE: As described in the "Pilot Testing" section of the Technical Manual, in addition to the review of test items by expert judges (members of the BRC and CACs), when permitted by sufficient candidate populations, empirical data were collected about statistical and qualitative characteristics of the new items through pilot testing. For this field there exists an insufficient candidate population for collecting statistical information through pilot testing. Therefore, pilot test information for multiple-choice questions is unavailable for the field.
