Quiz

Test students' knowledge with quizzes in an engaging way by encouraging active thinking

How does it work?

Students are presented with important learning content in all their courses that they need to apply in a variety of ways. The first step to gaining a deeper understanding of the content is to be able to test students’ understanding of the learning material.

Quiz enables instructors to ask both multiple choice and open questions to students and keep track of level of understanding. The tool tests the knowledge of students in an engaging way and encourages attentiveness and active thinking.

Tool Features

The tool enables teachers to add multiple choice questions, open-ended questions, or a combination of both throughout the quiz. Teachers have the possibility to add attachments to questions or answers.

Scratch-off questions (also known as the Immediate Feedback Assessment Technique (IF-AT)) can be enabled in the settings of the Quiz tool. Unlike regular multiple choice questions, scratch-off questions provide students with multiple attempts to answer the question and only reveal whether the answer is correct after submitting. If the selected answer was incorrect, this is revealed to the student, but the other answers remain veiled. This gives the students limited information that challenges them to carefully identify their false assumptions.

Teachers can set deadlines for when they would like the Quiz to be available and be closed for students. They can schedule a specific time for the opening and closing of the steps or adjust this manually.

Teachers can set the answers to never be revealed for students in a non-scratch off Quiz. When this option is selected, the answer in multiple choice questions and open questions will never be shown to a student and only to a teacher.

Pedagogical value

Teaching value

Implementing regular quizzes in your course design can help engage students throughout the entire course, while at the same time providing them with immediate feedback on the content they may be mastering, or struggling with. Getting them past that first level of understanding is more motivating for students, and allows you as an educator to focus on deeper learning during class.

Learning value

Students can often perceive assessments as stressful, so having the opportunity to practice, or take several smaller assessments throughout a course, helps students stay engaged with the content, increase feelings of competence, and help them prepare to face these assessments later on. Quizzes also assist in mastering content, meaning students can focus on deeper levels of learning, such as analyzing, evaluating, and creating new work.

The AI-tool Automated Feedback on writing gives students instant feedback on the quality of academic writing in assignments, thesis, and other deliverables. Students improve their academic writing skills by receiving direct in-line feedback, resulting in more permanent and actionable learning. As importantly, the tool also reduces the time spent on assignment review for teachers, allowing them to reallocate their time on providing feedback on the content rather than the form.
