|Multiple Choice Questions is a convenient and cost-effective way of assessing student ability. Issues concerning the assessment of partial knowledge and the use of guessing by examinees have led to the proposal of alternative methods of Multiple Choice testing. In the present study, students’ attitudes towards six assessment methods were measured. Two of the methods are conventional and widely used while the rest are methods of alternative Multiple Choice Questions. The sample was students from both the secondary education and university and attitudes towards the methods were assessed with the use of questionnaires. The results showed a strong relation between perceived fairness and perceived accuracy in measuring a students’ knowledge. Both of them are a decisive factor in students’ preference in a method. Regarding preference, the conventional methods (essay type questions and conventional multiple choice questions) seem to be the students’ choice over the alternative methods. A strong disapproval of multiple choice questions with negative marking was evident. Indications of the significance of certain factors (Approach to Learning, Educational Level, Preference in Courses, School Performance) in shaping assessment preference are also presented and discussed.
