CTL Workshop - Writing Effective Multiple Choice Questions
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The Center for Teaching and Learning Teaching Toolkit Workshop open to all faculty and TAs. This session's topic, writing effective exam/quiz questions.
While multiple-choice exams are a common form of assessment in many disciplines, it takes time and skill to develop good quality questions. Instructors with very large classes favor the multiple-choice question format over performance-based assessments due to its efficiency and accuracy of scoring. Critics of this question format point out that these questions test factual recall of knowledge and not higher-order thinking skills. However, well-formulated questions can not only raise the quality of this type of assessment but also be used to evaluate higher-order thinking skills such as applications, analysis and evaluation.

Please join our Instructional Design team on Wednesday, April 12th from 2:00 - 3:00 pm in W2017 to learn the best strategies for creating effective multiple-choice questions and what common pitfalls to avoid. We might make you take quizzes! But we promise you’ll learn from them.

On-site attendance encouraged, but will also be streamed via Adobe Connect at A recording will also be posted to our Toolkit Events page at a later date.

No registration is needed. If you have any questions, please contact or your Instructional Designer.
Andrew Christlieb "A sub-linear deterministic FFT for sparse high dimensional signals"
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Speaker: Andrew Christlieb,Michigan State University Abstract:In this talk we investigate the problems of efficient recover of sparse signals (sparsity=k) in a high dimensional setting. In particular, we are going to investigate efficient recovery of the k largest Fourier modes of a signal of size N^d, where N is the bandwidth and d is the dimension. Our objective is the development of a high dimensional sub-linear FFT, d=100 or 1000, that can recover the signal in O(d k log k) time. The methodology is based on our one dimensional deterministic sparse FFT that is O(k log k). The original method is recursive and based on ratios of short FFTs of pares of sub-sampled signals. The same ratio test allows us to identify when there is a collision due to aliasing the sub-sampled signals. The recursive nature allows us to separate and identify frequencies that have collided. Key in the high dimensional setting is the introduction of a partial unwrapping method and a tilting method that can ensure that we avoid collisions in the high dimensional setting on sub-sampled grids. We present the method, some analysis and results for a range of tests in both the noisy and noiseless cases.
