Terence Tao on multiple choice tests

Just a quick link today to a blog post by Terry Tao (a pretty good mathematician). He recently posted some thoughts on the utility of multiple choice questions.

I remember, from my teaching days at NYU, that many undergrads think that "multiple choice" means "easy". I felt slightly guilty in showing them otherwise. I think Mr. Tao's example questions help illustrate some of the possibilities.
