D2L Quizzes: Tips for Increasing the Effectiveness of Numeric and Non-numeric Quizzes

Fall 2021


More Details

Whether you are teaching live, on-ground classes or fully online classes, D2L Quizzes can be utilized to provide students with increased exposure to and practice with course material in a highly randomized and automated fashion that protects academic integrity while also reducing faculty workload. The workshop presenter will describe how to 1) create questions of various types, 2) question libraries, and 3) quizzes and exams in D2L Quizzes. Special emphasis will be placed on properly programming Arithmetic Questions (2+2) and the use of Regular Expressions for Fill in the Blank Questions (FIB). Attendee familiarity with D2L Quizzes would be helpful but is not required.

This is a Zoom workshop.

You will receive a Zoom meeting link the day before the workshop.

If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.
