Short Description

Information retention and transfer can be enhanced when a learner is given multiple opportunities to recall new information. In an online course, this can be done by integrating low-stakes quizzes and further enhanced by including meaningful feedback on student performance. This presentation will take a detailed look at how to integrate low-stakes quizzes and meaningful feedback into an online course.

Abstract

Information retention and transfer can be enhanced when a learner is given multiple opportunities to recall new information. In an online course, this can be done by integrating low-stakes quizzes that allow multiple attempts and providing meaningful feedback on students' performance. Offering a low incentive and multiple attempts will help to remove the pressure often associated with high-stakes quizzes/exams and encourage the learner to focus on the material as opposed to a grade, while meaningful feedback zeros in on areas of improvement and provides resources for correction. This presentation will take a detailed look at how to integrate low-stakes quizzes and meaningful feedback into an online course.
