Study skills: Using online quizzes

Pedagogy Skills Homework
When considering effective learning strategies, Helen Webb suggests creating online, automatically marked quizzes to improve your tracking and students’ learning

In order to improve students’ revision skills, this year I have introduced to students during lessons a variety of effective learning strategies, backed by evidence from cognitive psychology research.

You can read more about this project in my previous articles for SecEd, including pieces focusing on retrieval practice and using revision guides more effectively (see below for a link to all my previous articles for SecEd).

The aim of this particular aspect of the project was to create online automatically marked quizzes using Google forms that would not only allow me to better track students’ understanding of a particular science topic but would also improve students’ learning.
