An ELT Glossary : Practicality

  • Definition : In testing, how easy or difficult a test is to administer and mark.

  • Example : A multiple choice test is more practical than a test using essay writing as the multiple choice test can be marked quickly and easily by using a template (without even needing to read the answers) or  by computer, while the essay test requires a marker to take the time to read,and consider carefully what has been written.
