How I Use It
I wanted to give computer based tests so my students would learn more about how to take them. Quia proved to be a very good platform for this task. Quia does a great job of organizing their scores and making them quite a useful tool for teachers. I have created vocabulary games and had students also create these vocabulary learning games. They are a very engaging and helpful review tool.
This is a great tool for giving tests on-line. It provides all the stats a teacher could want to evaluate validity/ reliability, etc of their test questions or evaluating the results of their student's learning. I also love it as a review tool for vocabulary lessons.
I wish that quia had some way to lock out opening other browser windows when students are taking a test. Students learn new skills and soon learn how to be sneaky and cheat on the test by opening other windows and hiding them.
