Purpose: The aim of this study was to apply the SELF evaluation strategy on a sample of multiple choice questions (MCQs) administered at introduction to research course
Method and Materials: A number of MCQs were carefully chosen from a pool of administered MCQs. All questions were discussed along with the justification of choosing one answer and excluding the other options. The justification was built of running the SELF evaluation strategy on all questions.
Results: Discrimination and difficulty indices were calculated for all questions included. The indices were settled in a template for convenience.
Conclusion: It is concluded that SELF evaluation strategy is feasible and practical, even among inexperienced academics, to assess the validity of MCQs within the field of research. It is recommended to use SELF evaluation strategy to have quality MCQs that lead to developing competency in research methodology.

Key words: Evaluation strategy, research, SELF evaluation, MCQ, competence
