200 Multiple Choice Questions (Algebra)

The project is create 200 multiple-choice items on different topics in algebra. This is a pilot project to evaluate contractor capability and if successfully completed, may lead to ongoing work of a similar nature on a larger scale. The budget for this project is US$200. The expected maximum duration is three weeks/21 days, but it should be possible to complete the work in less time.

Sample questions are available in the book "Elementary Algebra" by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. This book is licensed for re-use under Creative Commons CC-BY-3.0. It is available at the following link:

The contractor will create 200 multiple-choice items, distributed over 7 topics. The topics correspond to the following chapters in the reference book. The distribution shall be 20 questions on Chapter 4 and 30 questions each on the other 6 chapters. Note that Chapters 1, 2, 3 and Chapter 7 are not included in this project.

Chapter 4: Algebraic Expressions and Equations

Chapter 5: Solving Linear Equations and Inequalities

Chapter 6: Factoring Polynomials

Chapter 8: Rational Expressions

Chapter 9: Roots, Radical and Square Root Equations

Chapter 10: Quadratic Equations

Chapter 11: Systems of Linear Equations

In this project the items used should correspond to the more difficult exercises in each chapter in the book.

The contractor can use the questions in the reference book, or create original questions of the same level. Note that the questions at the link are not multiple-choice, so the contractor will have to come up with plausible distractors.

That is the contractor will have to work out the solution, introduce mistakes and then work out the erroneous result and enter it as a distractor. Thus prior experience in generating multiple-choice questions with good quality distractors is important. The contractor will have to provide a brief rationale for the distractors. There should be one correct answer and three distractors for each question.

The contractor will not have to provide a detailed step-by-step solution in this project. In future projects the contractor may be required to provide hints or solution step details.

The questions have to be submitted as a text file, using AsciiMath or Latex. The contractor should be familiar with typesetting mathematical notation in Web pages using AsciiMath and/or Latex.

We expect that questions will require 10 - 30 min/per question including working out solution, generating distractors, and entering into a text file, for a contractor who is proficient in algebra and in mathematics typesetting using AsciiMath/Latex.

Submission schedule

While the overall project duration is three weeks, we expect the contractor to submit questions for one chapter every three days.

Skills required


Setting multiple-choice math questions with plausible distractors

Math type-setting in Web pages

Other details required in bid

Please provide details of prior experience in setting mathematics test items, and samples of 3 questions created from the reference book as described above, using AsciiMath/Latex, with a brief rationale for the distractors that you have created.

Please also confirm that you have looked at the reference book and that you will be able to adhere to the schedule of one chapter every three days.

Payment Schedule

There will be one milestone payment of $100 mid-way through the contract provided the contractor has completed about 100 questions by then and a final milestone payment on successful completion of the project. Please do not make a bid that requires an up-front payment/retainer.
