## Merits of the interactive quizzes:

First you don’t need to think up questions and second you don’t need to mark.

- Questions are carefully randomized, giving students their own individual set of questions that fall within reasonable parameters of difficulty;
- The practice quiz is built with the same code as the quiz: the same types of questions show up in both;
- There are infinitely many questions to practice with. Students think in terms of ‘do I know how to do this yet?’ rather than ‘am I finished?’;
- Mistakes are essential in learning – the practice quiz is there for students to exhaust all of their mistakes;
- Students are generally given two or three attempts on quiz questions – giving them the opportunity to self correct. This mirrors real world math a little better.
- The final screen on the quiz shows the student score;
- You can ‘pause’ and ‘resume’ any quiz;
- Since every question set is different from every other question set, there is meaningful learning in retaking the quiz.

## In the classroom

As teachers know it takes more than a good activity to make a good lesson. To use these quizzes effectively in the classroom, here are some recommendations:

- Require that students have notepaper, pen and calculator beside the laptop. Students often like to go ‘brain-to-chromebook’ . However for most students ‘brain-
*to-paper*-to-chromebook’ forms learning. (Not all – there’s probably one kid who *will* do much better and be much happier without the paper)
- For students in math courses that lead to math at university, these quizzes are an excellent stepping stone to a traditional paper and pencil test. For equity and access I make sure to use some of the quiz questions in the paper and pencil test.
- On any quiz there’ll probably be a student who insists that the computer is wrong and they are right. From time to time there might be an answer entry problem (incorrect rounding is number one). Usually the student has an error in their work that can be figured out. This is excellent learning in troubleshooting. If you do find a real live mistake, I’d appreciate if you use the contact form to tell me about it.
