Multiple choice questions criticised but not in ITIL V3 this time

I wonder if APMG are in the same building as some of the British school examination designers?

A friend sent me this article:

The new qualifications watchdog for England has made its presence known with a damning report on the standards of general science and physics GCSEs, which it says require "immediate, firm action"...

One of the main bones of contention for Ofqual is the prevalence of "objective testing" (multiple choice questions).

They can mean that students do not really have the opportunity to demonstrate the full extent of their knowledge, particularly the requisite knowledge for a grade A.

At least APMG have fixed a problem we had in ITIL V2 and the British schools still have: "The specifications differ considerably across awarding bodies".
