Making use of online MCQ tests to enhance teaching-and-learning practices

Lecturer, Juliana Willemse (School of Nursing),  has implemented online
Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) tests within her online environment
(Sakai/iKamva). Three formative assessment tests were created for the
third year Nursing students which encourages them to revise specific
content taught in class.

Juliana booked the Thintana computer lab and made arrangements with a
CIECT team member to demonstrate the use of the assessment tool.

Various settings can be applied when creating online MCQs. Students are
able to re-take tests for self-assessment purposes. Test results are
automated.

The Centre for Innovative Educational and Communication Technologies
(CIECT) invites you to attend the Annual eLearning Colloquium, on
Thursday 05 September 2013. Lecturers across Faculties will share their
experiences and challenges regarding the various communication, content
and assessment eTools used to enhance their teaching practice.

On Saturday, 17 August 2013 the Nursing Postgraduate students attended the ePortfolio workshop in the BOE Lab. This workshop enabled students to:

– Structure and upload relevant folders online
– Create their online ePortfolio site;
– Structure webpages according to the template (as provided by lecturer);
– Add profile information;
– Insert relevant images; and
– Add clinical lessons and examples of scripts which highlight the development of their students.

The CIECT team will conduct follow-up consultation sessions with Postgraduate students in order to assist with the development of the online portfolios.
