Students like questions to help them prepare for exams. However, it’s hard to provide enough questions for many self-assessments and exams. That’s one reason why the University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil developed the Moodle plugin StudentQuiz. StudentQuiz enables students to collaboratively create their own question pools within Moodle. Even if an individual student contributes a few questions only, a large cohort could easily build up an extensive question pool.
In StudentQuiz, students can filter questions into quizzes, and they can rate and comment on questions while working through the quizzes. StudentQuiz collects usage data for each question and ranks students based on their contribution and performance within the quizzes. A personal learning assistance feature displays the individual progress and compares it with the community average. The created questions become part of the Moodle question bank and can be reused in other Moodle quizzes.
A teacher can configure:
- whether students’ names are displayed or kept anonymous.
- what questions types are allowed to be added to the pool.
- the number of points assigned to questions contributed and answers given.
