Abstract : The report defines and discusses probability testing as a relatively new way of administering multiple choice tests. Instead of asking a student to choose just one of the alternative answers to a question, one asks him to state his subjective probability that each alternative answer is correct. His response is then scored by an admissible scoring system.
