Are you struggling to hold your students accountable for completing required readings? Have you attempted to facilitate a class discussion and it is obvious that the bulk of your students have not read the material? Online quizzes provide an efficient way to "flip your classroom." When used effectively, they will ensure that students read the required materials prior to class. They may also be used to assess students' understanding of basic concepts so that you may focus on their application in your classroom activities. By utilizing a text bank, you can minimize the "sharing" of answers. And, you can do all of this while actually lowering your grading workload, while students receive immediate feedback on their performance.
