I teach 6th grade math in Anoka, MN and our department is struggling with the question of how valuable multiple choice tests are in math. Some teachers do not like multiple choice tests because it's easier to guess and not always as easy to find students' mistakes. Others argue students need to be tested in the format they will see on standardized tests. I'm wondering if other middle school math teachers have struggled with this question?
