The article discusses the problem of using multiple choice tests as a means of formative assessment. As a rule, this type of assessing materials is correlated with summarising assessment; however, as the analysis of theoretical sources has shown, the use of multiple choice tests for training allows us to realise the goals of formative assessment. During the study, the main aspects of the use of multiple choice tests in the course of assessment of learning and in the course of assessment for learning were compared, after which the requirements for multiple choice tests for formative assessment were formulated. The identification of the specific characteristics of the use of multiple choice tests for formative assessment allowed us to specify the methods of using tests at different stages of educational process. Based on the results of the study, recommendations for teachers on the development and use of multiple choice tests for assessment for learning are proposed.
