Matching Test Items
Matching test items are used to test a student's ability to recognize relationships and to make associations between terms, parts, words, phrases, clauses, or symbols in one column with related alternatives in another column. When using this form of test item, it is a good practice to provide alternatives in the response column that are used more than once, or not at all, to preclude guessing by elimination. Matching test items may have either an equal or unequal number of selections in each column.
Matching-Equal Columns. When using this form, providing for some items in the response column to be used more than once, or not at all, can preclude guessing by elimination.
Directions: In the blank before each electrical term in the left-hand column, write the letter corresponding to the unit of measurement which is most closely associated with that term. Each unit of measurement may be used more than once and some units may not be used at all.
1. ____ Electromotive force A. Watt
2. ____ Electrical power, apparent B. Volt
3. ____ Electrical power, true C. Ampere
4. ____ Resistance D. Coulomb
5. ____ Capacitance E. Ohm
6. ____ Inductance F. VAR
7. ____ Current G. Farad
8. ____ Impedance H. Henry
Matching-Unequal Columns. Generally preferable to equal columns.
Directions: In the blank before each phrase in the left-hand column, write the letter(s) corresponding to the type(s) of drag which is/are most closely associated with that phrase. Each type of drag may be used more than once, and some types may not be used at all.
1. ____ Occurs when varied currents over an airplane meet and A. Form drag
interact. B. Induced drag
2. ____ Results from the turbulent wake caused by the separation C. Skin friction drag
of airflow from the surface of a structure. D. Static drag
3. ____ Caused by the roughness of the airplane's surfaces. E. Interference drag
4. ____ Generated by the airflow circulation around the airfoil as F. Rolling drag
it creates lift. G. Sliding drag
