ELTAI WEBINAR ON CONSTRUCTING MCQs, (OCTOBER 04, 2020)
 

 

 


An informative and educational webinar was conducted by the English Language Teachers Association of India (ELTAI) on the correct methods of constructing MCQs. The session was moderated by Ms Priyanka Bhatkoti. The resource person was eminent educationist and curriculum creator, Dr P.N. Ramani. The vote of thanks was given by A. Soosai Rathinam.

 


The focus of the webinar was to point out the discrepancies found commonly in framing multiple choice questions. Dr Ramani quite rightly pointed out that the questions are either too direct or too obtuse. He indicated that distracters in the MCQ choices must not be illogical or incorrect. He encouraged teachers to keep choices simple and from the given text.  It was an hour-long session that was filled with learning. Dr Ramani also took a few questions at the end.
