This quiz site is great- conducting quizzes on the computer would be near impossible without technologies like this, it is fantastic. The context I have used this technology in is as follows.
The unit I am currently doing with my learners is on dinosaurs and some of the declarative learning outcomes need a simple form of assessment; this technology is the answer to my dilemma! Simple outcomes such as knowing why dinosaurs are extinct and different random but important dinosaur-facts have been tested through this quiz. Click here to take it.
Online quizzes in education assist with catering to every learners needs through being available 24 hours a day; this means that learners can take the quiz when they feel they have the content knowledge and are ready to take it. This gives them the freedom to control their learning (Quinn & Reid, 2003).
