Student Generated Test Questions

Student generated test questions provide an opportunity for students to think more deeply about course content. The act of creating a test question about information recently read, discussed in class, or viewed via video requires students to recall and process content. Ideally, students will create a question and answer that can be used on an exam, within the guidelines required by the instructor.

Evaluation: Can use the questions to create a practice quiz or incorporate them into the exam. Consider reviewing with students and highlighting effective questions (and why they are worthwhile).
