The purpose of this session is to share best practices for objective assessment development and promote its use as a reliable, scalable measure for assessing higher levels of learning. Multiple-choice exams are considered by many to be rudimentary measures that should be limited to assessing lower levels of learning. This thinking translates to institutions spending very little time, if at all, on equipping faculty with the skills to develop effective objective assessments and/or reviewing such measures for reliability. With growing concerns around the validity of our work and the shift towards online education, we must revisit multiple-choice exams as a reliable, scalable solution for assessing learning. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in collaborative exercises related to item development and the implementation of the session's content at their own institution.
