Presented at the I.C.E. Virtual Exchange 2020

This session will explore the benefits of using 3-option multiple-choice (MC) items and explain how to psychometrically convert existing operational 4-option MC items to 3-option MC items without re-pretesting. The session will include a discussion of when it is appropriate and beneficial to make the switch, provide an overview of the psychometric process on how to convert items, and practices to begin building new 3 and 4-option MC items.
