The Moodle Quiz at the Open University: how we use it and how that helps students

Content Type: Case Study

Target Audience: Teacher / Course Creator 

Language: English

Description of Presentation

The Open University has been using online computer-marked assessment since at least 2006. Online quizzes are now used in 146 courses each year, one quarter of the total. In one sixth of all courses they form part of the assessment that determines whether students pass. In total, more than 650,000 quiz attempts are submitted each year.

We have not just used the quiz during that time. Academics from several faculties have undertaken scholarship to understand how students engage with our quizzes. Do the quizzes help students? What is the best way to set up quizzes to help students most effectively? Should quizzes be formative or summative? Do students read and act on the feedback? Does it matter if the quiz has a deadline? Are students who leave quizzes to the last minute more likely to get a bad grade?

I will present the highlights of how we use the quiz and what we have learned about how that can help students.
