Do these problems please!

Geoff Swan
Edith Cowan University
Students expecting to master physics need to allocate significant out of class time for study. In particular, they need to attempt a wide range of exercises and problems, and seek help for difficulties not resolved. In semester 2, 2001, SCP1112 Waves and Electricity students have been given the option of attempting regular online quizzes that assess their progress and provide feedback.

These quizzes have been developed using WebCT and have incorporated both original questions and those from an online test bank supplement available to lecturers who adopt the textbook. In this session, the advantages and disadvantages of the online quizzing environment will be discussed, the impact of various quizzing options on the students given, and feedback from delegates sought.
