A lot of you write test questions for online training. Or even paper-based tests you’re still delivering the old-fashioned way (good on you!).
Maybe you’re doing it with an eLearning authoring tool, such as the ones from Articulate, Adobe, or Lectora. Or maybe the learning management system (LMS) you use at work has a built in tool for creating online quizzes.
No matter how you’re writing tests for training, you may sometimes find yourself wondering about the best practices for writing standard question types. (By the way, instructional designers often use the wonky phrases “assessment” for a test and “assessment item” for a question within a test.)
We’ve got a few of those best practices for you below. Hope this helps you with your question writin’. 🙂
