Quick Reference

A means of assessment in which there is no margin for subjectivity, interpretation, or speculation on the part of the assessor or examiner. It involves questions for which there is a clear‐cut answer. Simple numerical tests and multiple choice questions are common examples of objective testing, while assessment requiring a discursive response in the form of an essay, for example, is clearly not. One measure of objectivity is whether the assessment can be carried out by computer.
