    Talk: How can computer-marked quizzes help students learn? 15 November 2023



    A presentation by Tim Hunt as part of our series of workshops on All about conducting on-line tests with Moodle, 15 November 2023 (21 min)

    Abstract

    1. As teachers, we cannot do the student's learning for them. All we can do is to provide scaffolding and feedback to help them. Online quizzes let you do both.

    2. I want to talk about the two fundamentally different types of online questions: Selected response questions - like multiple choice - the student need only recognise the right answer in the possibilities given. Constructed response questions - like short-answer or formulas - the student must work out the answer without hints, but are harder to mark. 

    3. Different ways to use questions, like exams or practice. I think you covered this in a previous session, but I want to say it again. In this section, I will probably demonstrate our embedded question plugins. I will probably also highlight interactive with multiple tries behaviour.

    4. Finally, I will talk a bit about academic integrity - which will start to move in the direction of what you will cover.
