>I would be interested to hear any suggestions.

I think any one of the following would assess students definitively:

Complete the following iambic line by Shakespeare:

"To be or..."
 a. else
 b. whatever
 c. to be forgotten by fardels
 d. greater England's doom
 e. none of the above

Where are there more things than are dreamt about in Horatio's
philosophy?

 a. the Globe theater
 b. Pittsburg
 c. heaven
 d. earth
 e. all of the above

According to Shakespeare, what does "Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow"
do?

a. runs at a rapid pace
b. creeps in a petty pace
c. looks back on fardels with disdain
d. untimely rips the Donalbain
e. doubles, doubles toil and troubles

Did I read this correctly? Or was this one early for Thursday, which is
April 1?

Ohio Northern University needs only a single multiple-choice question
(should we list that as one multiple-guess question) to fulfill their
assessment needs in terms of the study of Shakespeare?

They certainly need no help in assessment, then.  They already have an
enviable plan.  And the best thing is, the actual question could be
anything, could it not?  Under the circumstances, the results will be
meaningless anyway.  But they will generate numbers!

No one wants to read 3000 essays or ascertain any learning that is more
complex than A-B-C-D.  So we apply the plan to Shakespeare, the most
complex and subtle of writers.

Good luck.
