Abstract

Extended response essay questions (EREQ) have a lot of potential and can be used to assess higher order skills in students, including problem solving, decision making and written communication skills. This study compares the performance of two cohorts of students undertaking EREQ or restricted response questions (RRQ). Students belonging to the ‘successful’ category fared well in both type of questions. However, the weaker students did significantly better in the RRQ when compared to EREQ. This suggests that EREQ have a valuable role in assessing the higher order skills of students.
