Faculty Spotlight

Sherece Thompson (Dental Hygiene, MX) is using Brightspace Quizzes to regularly assess her students’ learning and ensure they are keeping up with the material. She uses a variety of question types including multiple choice, true/false, matching, ordering, and written response. Every quiz is an opportunity for students to assess their own learning, and an opportunity for her to gauge how students are grasping the material in addition to identifying learning-gaps in the subject. One of the unexpected benefits of the Quizzes tool was in her ability to view question statistics and identify questions where the majority of the class was answering incorrectly. Upon reviewing this she was able to consider whether she wanted to change the wording of a question, throw out a question completely, or re-affirm the question despite the low achievement. This practice of assessing, evaluating, and then adjusting–either the exam or her instruction–has made closing the assessment loop in her courses quick, efficient, and meaningful.
