What is the recommended number of answer choices? I have read that 3 is preferred but I mostly see 4 to 5 choices per question.
Julie Balko

That would take me the entire test period just to read and process this question! Wowie!

Has anyone seen the recent NAVLE MC questions?
Jesse Watson

Providing a little context fits well with establishing relevance, construction of knowledge, and transfer down the line.
Jesse Watson
50:31
As well as boosting the level of cognition around the question.
Temesgen
52:01
I agree Jesse, but the issue is when certain clinical conditions are specific or more relevant to certain age, breed, sex, or spay/intact status, etc
Jesse Watson
53:12
And so you don't want to give away the answer by providing context?
Jo Smith (she,her,ella)
56:34
Are there broad guidelines for how long the higher level questions take, e.g. how many to include in an e.g. 50 mins exam, versus recall questions which presumably don't take as long ...?
Temesgen
57:55
The other way around: I hesitate to mention age, vaccination status, spay/intact, etc unless relevant to the answer.
Jesse Watson
01:01:01
@Temesgen Ah, yes - you do want to avoid irrelevant info unless there's some contextual value for the question (at which point...it's relevant!)
Joerg Mayer
