Abstract

Online practice quizzes are a popular way for students to test their readiness for a classroom exam. The authors have developed a quiz database application that stores potential test questions and exports selected subsets of questions to a web-based Javascript program. Feedback from students has been very positive. Students indicate that the question-feedback cycle helps them learn the material and prepare for the real exam. This paper will discuss how the database application works, explain how educators can obtain and use the application for use in their own classes, and provide general guidance for constructing quiz questions that make the quiz a positive learning experience.
