German term or phrase: MC
"Ferner gibt es Präsenzschulungen und auswärtige Schulungen. Lernzielkontrollen sind z. B. schriftliche Tests (*MC*, Bestehensgrenze 50 %, Auswertung über sog. Supporter). "
In an inspection report under the heading 'Schulung', probably an English abbreviation, but it's all Greek to me.
