Thank you to Sarah for submitting the following question:
It is acceptable to have an open book test for a first aid multiple choice assessment?

Hi Sarah, thank you for your question.
With assessment, the purpose is to gather evidence of a person’s skills and knowledge. Could you say that an open book exam with multiple choice questions was valid and met this purpose? I would say it is very unlikely that you could demonstrate that this was a valid assessment.
