Increasing Student Success Using Online Quizzing in Introductory (Majors) Biology.
Students often complain about their perceived disconnect between the time and effort spent studying and their subsequent performance on exams. We used an online homework platform to give required quizzes throughout the course. Analysis of exam grades earned by those taking 100% of pre-exam quizzes indicates that this group has a significantly higher exam average than both the group of students who took 0% of the pre-exam quizzes, and the class average. The benefit of quizzing is found to be significant for students of diverse academic abilities.
