Quizzes are a great way to engage students, find out where students need further support, and provide an effective mechanism to provide feedback and feedforward to students. In addition, quizzes can be a really useful tool for providing both formative and summative assessments.
Online quizzes consist of a series of questions which are completed online in real-time undertaken either remotely or in an on-campus environment. Brightspace quizzes are typically used to assess acquisition of knowledge and comprehension, application and analysis skills (Ragupathi, 2016). They are often associated with multiple choice questions but they can also include a range of other question types such as; true/false, multi select, short answer, fill-in-the-blank and more.
The quiz tool in Brightspace offers flexibility in the creation, delivery and grading of online quizzes. It can be used to deliver online quiz activities to give feedback on learning i.e. for low stakes formative purposes or to deliver more formal online assessments i.e. for high stakes, summative (grading) purposes.
