This project is concerned with the development and online publication of a browse-able repository of multiple choice questions (MCQs), suitable for student self-study to provide formative assessment in introductory undergraduate Physics courses.
The importance of formative assessment in undergraduate learning is well-established and practitioners in HE would support the strategic goal of ultimately wanting our undergraduate students to develop into more autonomous learners. To this end, in Edinburgh we have previously developed over a number of years an extensive bank of MCQs that can be used by our own students to test their understanding of material and to provide instant formative feedback. The questions are delivered electronically via the Web and students can access them from wherever and whenever they choose. Such materials are certainly not unique around Physics departments in the UK, textbook publishers etc.(leer más…)

e-Learning in the School of Physics(First, a title disclaimer; it may seem like every posting on this blog gets “2.0” triumphantly added to it. But in this case there’s a good reason for the 2.0. Two, in fact…. )

DUMP2.0 has been funded by the HEA Physical Sciences Center as a development project, building on last year’s project in this area (called, wait for it DUMP – that is Database of Useful MCQs for Physics) I am sure that DUMP as a project acronym contravenes some rule of not having acronyms that contain acronyms…..]
