Multiple-Choice Tests and Student Understanding: What Is the Connection?
A modified research model for CR/MC research based on knowledge-level analyses of MC test banks and CR question sets from basic computer language programming is proposed and it is proposed that their analyses readily generalize to similar teaching domains of interest to decision sciences educators such as modeling and simulation programming.
Why Do College Students Cheat?
More is known about the pervasiveness of college cheating than reasons why students cheat. This article reports the results of a study that applied the theory of reasoned action and partial least…
Why don't more women major in information systems?
The study found that a “genuine interest in IS” and the “influence of family” most account for a woman's decision to major in information systems.
Core Concepts of Accounting Information Systems
This dramatically shorter text is entirely updated to reflect recent changes in technology and AIS practice and covers such subjects as EDI, reengineering, neural networks, client/server, and events accounting.
Why Don't More Students Major in IS?
The large increases in the number of information systems (IS) majors about 10 years ago have been matched by equally large decreases in IS enrollments over the last few years. This article addresses…
What best predicts computer proficiency?
A number of possible explanatory variables including demographic profiles, high school achievements, prior computer training and experience, cognitive styles, and problem-solving abilities are examined.
Why Is Performance on Multiple‐Choice Tests and Constructed‐Response Tests Not More Closely Related? Theory and an Empirical Test*
Both professional certification and academic tests rely heavily on multiple-choice questions, despite the widespread belief that alternate, constructed-response questions are superior measures of a…
Using Multiple-choice Tests to Evaluate Students' Understanding of Accounting
Despite the wide diversity of formats available for constructing class examinations, there are many reasons why both university students and instructors prefer multiple-choice (MC) tests over other…
Filling the Pipeline for IS Professionals: What can IS Faculty Do?
The field of information systems is but one of several fields that have experienced large swings in student enrollments over the years, where the large increases in enrollments in the 80s and 90s were matched by equally large decreases in the period 2001-2008.
How Well Do Multiple Choice Tests Evaluate Student Understanding in Computer Programming Classes?
It was found that, while student performance on these different types of questions was statistically correlated, the scores on the coding questions explained less than half the variability in the scores of students who were given both multiplechoice and short-answer questions on the same midterm examination.
