There are few studies referencing student opinions concerning testing formats. Therefore, the purpose of the current study was to develop a parsimonious logistical regression model for predicting student test preference for either multiple-choice tests or other tests. Participants were 150 mid-western university undergraduates (64 males, 86 females), between 18 and 55 years (M = 21.49, SD = 5.49). The initial set of predictors included four dimensions of personality type, and two total score measurements of test anxiety and need for cognition. Forward stepwise logistic regression was conducted at entry level alpha .10, with the initial model including all six predictors. The final model for predicting test preference indicated (a) need for cognition and personality type are significant predictors, (b) personality type variables were dropped, (c) odds of preferring multiple-choice tests for given levels of the predictor variables, and (d) test anxiety and need for cognition share an inverse relationship.... such as justify, evaluate, or rationalize). Advantages and disadvantages of essay tests Both limited and extended-response essay formats require meta- memory abilities: knowledge, awareness and control of onea#39;s memory (Tuckman, 1994).
