If this question is more appropriate in main (perhaps tagged "education"), please let me know and I will relocate it.
Every so often, I see a multiple choice question pertaining to advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate material. I am only familiar with my own (American) education, but I have never once encountered a multiple choice question beyond calculus. Is it possible these questions come from an online course offering, or is it simply more common to see multiple choice questions in other cultures?
(Let me stress this question is decidedly not an attempt to root out potential cheating. I'm simply curious about the phenomenon of multiple choice questions in advanced courses.)
