Test wiseness

From Teflpedia

Test wiseness is “the ability to respond advantageously to multiple-choice items containing extraneous clues.”[1]

This can be an effective test skill, particularly responding to badly-written test items.[2] And this can be taught as test preparation[3] Conversely, test item writing should aim to be resistant to test wiseness strategies.
