Curriculum-Based Assessments vs. Teacher-Made Assessments

Over the last three years in teaching the same reading curriculum, I am finding some of the questions in the curriculum-based assessments as unfair questions that try to trick students and don't assess what they really know. Some of the multiple-choice options have two or even three answers that could be correct, depending on one's level of thinking. I want to be fair to my students while also driving my instruction effectively. Do you tend to use curriculum-based assessments or teacher-made assessments? If you use curriculum-based assessments, have you made any changes? If so, have you changed answer options, re-worded the question or changed grading? For example, allowing two answers to be correct or deleting a question from the assessment altogether.
