Great article (again), thanks a lot for sharing!

If it comes to tests, I see multiple choice tests as one of the weakest methods. Every single multiple choice test I've seen so far, do not need a deep understanding of the learning objectives. It doesn't really test if the learner has developed one of the higher levels of Bloomeberg's revised taxonomy. Im my humble opinion, multiple choice is firmly anchored in "Remember".

Nearly every learner is able to solve nearly any multiple choice test by through learning by heart. In most cases a really deep understanding is is not necessary and very often it is possible to solve these ugly tests by guessing.
