This post summarizes an approach used by Hila Koren Cohen, Instructor of Operations Management and Information Systems and Schulich Teaching Excellence Award winner.
Do you want to sense your students’ learning progress during class time? Are you interested in monitoring participation during class? If your answers are “YES”, you can benefit from using the Canvas platform’s Quizzes / Survey feature. – Hila Koren-Cohen
Canvas Quizzes can be used in-class to gauge learners’ progress and monitor participation.
For example, after covering a specific topic in class an instructor may want to present students with practice questions. Once students have responded, using their laptops or smartphones, the instructor can see a summary of responses and provide tailored feedback.
Hila Koren-Cohen, Instructor of Operations Management and Information Systems and Schulich Teaching Excellence Award winner, uses Canvas Quizzes to present problems based on her slides during lectures.
She can then see a breakdown of how students have answered and provide real-time feedback.
In MGMT 2050 Business Analytics, after delivering a quiz, Hila will download a spreadsheet of the results to demonstrate statistical analysis of the data captured live in her class.
I have used this tool in a few of my classes. It’s user-friendly and students find the real-time feedback valuable for their learning process. It also provides a record of responses which can be used to evaluate student participation in your class. – Hila Koren Cohen
