Students like questions to help them prepare for exams. However, it's hard to provide enough questions for many self-assessments and exams. That's one reason why the University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil developed the Moodle plugin StudentQuiz. StudentQuiz enables students to collaboratively create their own question pools within Moodle. This allows a better learning experience because knowledge is actively constructed by the learner, not just passively received from the environment. And even if an individual student contributes a few questions only, a large cohort can easily build up and extensive question pool.
Students filter questions into individualised quizzes. While working through the quizzes, they measure and improve the quality of questions by rating and commenting. StudentQuiz collects data for each question and ranks students based on their contribution and performance within the quizzes. A personal learning assistance displays the individual progress and compares it with the community average. The created questions become part of the Moodle question bank and can be reused in standard Moodle quizzes. The presentation demonstrates the collaborative usage of StudentQuiz and shares practical experiences.
