For this assignment, create a total of 10 multiple-choice questions based on the chapter(s) on Aristotle, Self Love and Aristotle, Three Kinds of Friendship.
Here is a list of requirements and guidelines to make sure you earn the highest grade possible:
- For all questions, be explicit about whose point of view is being presupposed (the author, someone they quote, someone they respond to, a particular character within the reading, etc.). An easy way to do here would be to start every question with something like “According to (relevant name),…”
- Each of these questions should contain at least five answer options (though feel free to come up with more if you wish), and these should work independently of the rest (so avoid options such as ‘all of the above,’ ‘none of the above,’ ‘a and c,’ etc.).
- Since these are multiple-choice questions, make sure to come up with questions that have objective answers (see the instructions on our ClassMarker tests (Link will open in this tab.) for further details on what this means).
- It is perfectly fine for your questions to have more than one correct answer.
- In any case, indicate which answer options are correct (maybe by making each look something like this).
- Include a quick footnote at the end of each question indicating the page numbers where the relevant information is to be found, as well as your reasoning.
- Obviously, the more thoughtful and thought-provoking your questions (while still remaining true to the reading), the better your grade.
- If you want a sense of the kind of intellectual sophistication I’m looking for, consider again the questions you’ve already seen in our section tests. Notice, for instance, that, with a few exceptions, these tend to be conceptual, requiring you to apply higher-cognitive faculties: synthesis, analysis, evaluation, application, comprehension, contrast, distinction, etc. Simple, straight-forward factual questions (of the who-said-what, who-did-what, fill-in-the-blank, finish-the-quote, etc. variety) will receive only nominal credit.
