An analysis of the multiple choice test evaluation
* ,
1  Universidad Católica de Valencia "san Vicente mártir"


We evaluate the approach which usually justifies how much has to be subtracted for every incorrect answer in a multiple choice test. We have developed a calculation which takes into account the possibility of blank answer some questions, which is not possible with the usual approach. We show that when the number of questions tends to infinity, both approaches are asymptotically equivalent.

Keywords: Multiple choice test, central limit theorem.
