It's about a relationship between you, other writers, and your teacher/audience.
A research paper will show two things: what you know or learned about a certain topic, and what other people know about the same topic.
Multiple choice test items are less susceptible to guessing than true/false questions, making them a more reliable means of assessment.
The reliability is enhanced when the number of MC items focused on a single learning objective is increased.
In constructing multiple choice items to test higher order thinking, it can also be helpful to design problems that require multilogical thinking, where multilogical thinking is defined as “thinking that requires knowledge of more than one fact to logically and systematically apply concepts to a …problem” (Morrison and Free, 2001, page 20).
