The faculty favors multiple modes of assessment, including written papers and/or presentations, evaluation of experiential learning, and written examinations which may be composed of essay questions, short answer questions, and multiple choice questions. The faculty also favors written modes of assessment, which may be comprised of more than multiple choice questions. In a course in which a final examination is the only assessment, the examination should have multiple modes of assessment and should not weight multiple choice questions for more than 50% of the examination grade. In a course in which an examination represents 60% or less of the course grade, the examination may weight multiple choice questions for more than 50% of the final examination grade.
