ABSTRACT
The objective test in accounting is a test designed to cover a large amount of material, to have a large number of questions requiring very brief answers, the answer to each unit being the same for every student who answers the questions correctly. This kind of test has in recent years been referred to as the New Type Ten but since its use has been so commonly adapted it seems best to the writer to refer to it, not as a new type test, but as an objective test. In Indiana University the increased enrollment in accounting, without a corresponding budget increase, has necessitated some means of measuring student achievement with a minimum of clerical effort. The staff has regularly felt that the instructor's real service to the student comes from adequate preparation and presentation of materials rather than in the type of drudgery that accompanies long hours in marking papers. The institution requires that teachers give each student a letter grade each semester and the objective test furnishes the measuring device for arriving at the correct grade.
