This paper reports a feasibility study of a new test
format-multiple matching (MM). Under this format,
distractors from several items are pooled into a single
list which appears at the end of the test. The examinees
are asked to match one correct answer to each of
the items in the test. An experiment is described in
which the lengths of the item list and the distractor
pool were manipulated. It is shown that construction
of MM tests is technically feasible and that these tests
achieve satisfactory results in terms of reliability, validity,
and reduction of random guessing.
