  • I am having trouble trying to understand what you are talking about. What exactly is your question? What exactly is the problem you experienced in your exam?

  • Hi Luigi-

    It sounds like you are talking about a set of questions that all use the same set of answer choices.  You'll see a bunch of questions in a row that all have the same answer choices even if the questions are not related.  This is a newer type of item that is appearing across several exams.  I don't see it listed in this forum's sticky so maybe it can be updated to include them.  What you experienced is normal and not an error.

  • I've reviewed Microsoft's question type link and do not see this type of question structure mentioned.  Do you have a link where I can find more detgails of what you've described?

  • They are called extended matching questions (EMQ).  Commonly used in medical testing.  There is an entry on the Born to Learn blog from Liberty about them.  See the following URL.

  • I'll try to explain better (because who does exams are used to make an effort)
    the type of question that I have found is not a multiple choice question (box) but a question with many (many about ten) answers (the circle).
    These responses are repeated also in the subsequent questions (do not change are the same the same) And the same answer MAY 'be provided on more QUESTIONS (other).
    I hope I was clear in explaining the above first.

  • yes I agree. Same question-Type in 70-659 Germany.

    It followed 5 Question with 10 always "the same" answers. One Question can't be answer due that given answers -stop making sense.

    Many, many <Removed due to NDA> Question. I failled with 680/700 :-( OMG I've learned so much but maybe the wrong things

  • Questions are 6 in 70-659 exam

    They have circle answers to A from M

    They can be displayed in any point of exam but are ALWAYS all six in sequence.
