Types of multiple choice spelling tests

There are different kinds of multiple choice spelling tests. I will give you some examples about the different options on how to ask multiple choice spelling questions.

Choose the correct (or incorrect) answer.

You can differ the answer options from two to eight options. It’s better to use a positively worded question than a negatively worded question. Another possibility is to have more than one answer right. Although this seems to be a more difficult thing to be with spelling :-)

Example

Choose the right option:

  • Mississippi
  • Misissippi
  • Missisippi

Finish the sentence with only one option. It says what it contains.

Example

Finish the sentence

He is better……

  • than me
  • then me
  • than I am
  • the I am

Two options.

Example

Tom ……. a better grade ……. I have

  • have - than
  • has - than
  • have - then
  • has - then

Name the fault.

First you have to search the fault. Than you have to know what kind of fault it is. This asks more knowledge of your participants.

Example

How do you call this fault?

“White snow”

  • Pleonasm
  • Tautology

There are also options on how many times you want to ask a question:

Repeat until all the answers are right. Or ask all questions only one time.

How to study for a multiple choice spelling test?

After you know the rules, you have to apply the knowledge.
