Learning About Learn Online Quizzes

  • Using Learn Quizzes for formative assessment
  • Completed

Felipe Iza uses Learn Quiz for formative assessment with Loughborough University first year Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering students. 

He and his colleagues introduced a series of formative assessments throughout the course of their module designed to motivate and provide feedback to students, and to keep the module tutors informed of progress.  Using Learn, the University VLE as the delivery mechanism, the tutors were able to automate the process to accommodate a large cohort of students.

Year of students: First year (Part A)
Number of students in cohort: 150

Felipe discusses the reasons behind introducing the quizzes, the positives and negatives, and the response to the quizzes from both students and staff which would be interesting to all considering using an online quiz.  He has also used a template to generate multiple randomized questions within his subject area.
