Designing Accurate MCQs


NEP 2020 recommends every school to transition to tech-enabled adaptive assessment to monitor and measure the progress of individual students throughout their academic journey.

MCQs are the most effective and efficient formats of questions for all types of assessment – formative or summative.

MCQs are extremely effective to assess higher-order thinking abilities, provide instant (or timely) feedback to students, and generate useful data for teachers.

MCQ quizzes can be used by educators to diagnose learning gaps, pre-knowledge, engagement in learning, or attainment of specific learning outcomes.

Developing the skills to design accurate MCQs needs considerable effort.

This workshop will help participants TO develop the following competencies.


  • What are the 5 criteria to evaluate the accuracy of MCQs?

  • How should distractors be chosen to improve the accuracy of the MCQ?

  • How to change the ‘rigour’ of the questions to measure HOTS?
