I developed an interactive (computer based) testing method called
"TestBet" as a mathematically/psychometrically sound alternative to Multiple
Choice. No forced guessing when you don't know. It teaches realistic
self-assessment as an aside ("personal effectiveness": disencourageing
unwarranted certainty and recognizing what you *really* know), it enhances
studying for perfect and sure knowledge (not for the superficial sloppy
knowledge that meets the criteria to pass a MC-test), and give for each
individual on each item exact diagnostic information on the "state of
knowledge" on a continuous scale of measurement: from "serious fallacy" up
to "perfectly known", not just the MC dichotomy of "good" (may be guessed
good) vs. "wrong" (either consciously "unknown" or thinking it was right and
holding a serious fallacy).
I could send a free demo to anyone interested when you give me your
surface mail address.

When reading the works of an important thinker, look first for the
apparent absurdities in the text and ask yourself how a sensible person
could have written them." T. S. Kuhn, The Essential Tension (1977).
