Can someone please tell me what is a "free choice response" and a "paired choice response"...Thank you.

"paired choice response"... - match the question to the answer

15 Mar 2009     


Is it the independent task??
I guess ´free choice response ´ would deal more with general ideas, such as your experience, knowledge, wish, plan, opinion.
How do people celebrate their birthday in your country?
What are the characteristics of a good teacher?

´Paired choice response ´ basically asks you to take side on a given question and elaborate your argument/opinion.
Would you prefer to take tests or write a paper for your final examination?
Which one describes you better: an inspiring leader or a good follower?

Both types of course want you to use reasons and details to support your response.

Hope this helps.
