People from many countries have expressed interest in the tests students take for the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).

This analysis has been carried out in an effort to link PISA results to curricular programs and structures in participating countries and economies. Results from the student assessment reflect ...

Given the importance of this decision there are surprisingly few international studies that consider the effect of item format on achievement and the results of these studies are not consistent. Some of these studies do, however, illustrate that item format ...
