DRILL 3.1 - Special Feature: Question Balancing

Vadim Ponomarenko

To reduce the likelihood that a student can get a question right by its appearance, we have invested significant effort in balancing the questions. Each true/false question model is written in two halves, one true and one false, but both with very similar appearance. Furthermore, the phrasing and arrangement of the questions are varied. This reduces students cuing on appearance alone, and it effectively increases the size of the question bank.
