Creating Quizzes in Canvas to Help Students Prioritize Study Time
Imagine students being able to quiz themselves multiple times and then see statistics on how well they know each topic and even where to find the material they need to review. The initial pilot project for our 101 students has shown high voluntary participation as students can get feedback in a matter of minutes on what they know and directed where to study. In this presentation, Brian Chiswell will show how several components of Canvas, including Classic Quizzes, Question Banks, Outcomes, and the Mastery Gradebook, have been coordinated to provide students with real-time feedback as they are reviewing for exams.
Brian Chiswell, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor at NYSCAS in Touro University NY and has an undergraduate research lab where students study the molecular detail of cell signaling and oncogenesis in stomach cancer. He received a B.S. in biology from Francis Marion University and a Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of South Carolina. Following graduate school, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Yale University School of Medicine and then spent three years performing discovery stage research in the biotechnology industry. Dr. Chiswell has published papers in immunology, cell signaling, and structural biology and also published several 3D structures of protein complexes.
