I teach grades 3 to 6, but I'm open to hearing what middle and high school teachers do about this... I have a very strong disliking for multiple choice tests (just based on personal choice and what research I've read), so most of mine end up being fill in, matching, short answer, or essay style. ( I just graded a set of 17 tests and it took me 3 hours. I teach 8 classes, so this is just NOT working anymore.) Should I "give in" and try multiple choice tests? Is there a resource that can help me get better at creating these so I don't feel like the kids are just picking whatever sounds good? Is there an easier way to keep short answer/essay tests, but grade them MUCH faster? I'm thinking maybe about rubrics, but I'm worried that it will take me awhile to create the tool and I will spend just as much time trying to fill out the tool. (But I do love rubrics....) I use rubrics for projects or lab reports, but never a test with different question formats. Any other ideas??? My 5th and 6th graders do have access to Chromebooks. My 3rd and 4th graders do too but it's a bit trickier. But the tech tools are there - I would want something that I could print out and give to my students so they can show their parents. Not very high tech - I know - but I still want to have that method of sharing their work and grade.
