The data were collected through questionnaires and tests. The results show that the test instrument developed was theoretically feasible with an average expert score of 90.14. This fell into very good category and was empirically feasible. A total of 29 questions were valid and internally consistent with a moderate level of difficulty, good discrimination power, and good distractor.
