SELECTION TYPE QUESTION:

2. Matching type (single, double, checklist, matrix, fill in the blank)

Single Matching: In a single matching type question, it is better to extra option in the second column to check the understanding of the subject matter. If you give same numbers of option then most of the children give the last answer even without seeing the answer

3. Fill in the Blanks Type: Question can be given by given an option in the bracket or without giving option. Question can be to check the knowledge or understanding or skills or application.

4. Multiple choices (incomplete statement or question form): Most of the students blindly select the Answer and to avoid this situation, negative marking should be given for giving wrong answer. In that way the student will attempt the question which they know.

The Formula for giving wrong answer is

S = R – W/O-1

S – SCORE CORRECTED

R – NO. OF RIGHT ANSWER

W – NO. OF WRONG ANSWER

O – NO. OF OPTIONS

For Example: Suppose there are 20 MCQ and child attempt all the questions. There are five options given for each question. The child gives 12 correct answers and 8 wrong answers. So the final score can be calculated by using the above formula

S = R – W/O-1

= 12 – 5/5-1

= 12 – 5/4

=12 – 1.25

=10.75
