Ontology-based Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) generation has a relatively short history. Many attempts have been carried out to develop methods to generate MCQs from ontologies. However, there is a still a need to understand the applicability of these methods in real educational settings. In this paper, we present an empirical evaluation of ontology-based MCQ generation. We examine the feasibility of applying ontology-based MCQ generation methods by educators with no prior experience in ontology building. The ndings of this study show that this is feasible and can result in generating a reasonable number of educationally useful questions with good predictions about their difficulty levels.
