Multiple-Choice Item Review Checklist

The Multiple-Choice Item Review Checklist is used by the New York State educators who develop the Regents Exam as a quality control tool to ensure each question (item) on each test properly measures the Common Core and is of sufficient rigor.

Educators may consider using the Multiple-Choice Item Review Checklist in their own classrooms to ensure the questions they are creating and/or using meet the same standards that Regents Exam questions must meet. The Multiple-Choice Item Review Checklist can also be used with the Multiple Choice Item-Writing Form in teacher trainings to build a greater understanding of assessments and assessment design. Finally, educators can use the Multiple-Choice Item Review Checklist in tandem with other Common Core Assessment Design resources on EngageNY in professional development sessions focused on building capacity within their schools and/or districts to design their own formative assessment and use assessment data to drive instructional decisions and differentiation.
