Online Quizzes for Enhancing Student Learning in a First Year Engineering Course

By 

Abstract

Abstract ⎯ In the context of increasing student disengagement with on campus teaching and learning activities, the author undertook a project in order to stimulate and maintain student interest in a first year engineering course. Online technology has been used in order to provide students with flexible access to self paced interactive study materials in the form of online quizzes. These quizzes were also aimed at providing students with an alternative learning style and a mechanism to self assess their progress. This paper examines the impacts of these online quizzes on student engagement and learning, and seeks to obtain student feedback on the suitability of this medium for enhancing students ’ overall learning experience. Index Terms ⎯ Flexible delivery, online quiz, self-assessment, student disengagement
