Kyle Nazarchuk is a meteorology and earth science education dual major in his 5th year at Millersville University and is a member of the Millersville University Honors College.  After watching a TED Talk by Dr. Martin Bush investigating a method to eliminate guesswork on multiple choice tests, he was interested in attempting to reduce guesswork in multiple choice testing while still asking students to answer questions as though it was a normal multiple-choice test.  What interested him in the results was the unexpected increases that were seen in scores for students that were lower in the grading curve and he looks forward to future research to refine his methods to correct this behavior.  Kyle plans to further his education in curriculum, instruction, and assessment, and to teach secondary earth science.
