Week 6: Quiz Writer


The purpose of this assignment is to develop student-generated quiz items to promote individual and collective learning of advanced pharmacological concepts. Generating quiz items supports learners to recall and process content. Peer review of developed quiz items provides feedback on the questions and responses and allows for engagement in the peer-review process.

Preparing the Assignment

Follow these guidelines when completing each component of the assignment. Contact your course faculty if you have questions.

1.  Quiz-item writing

Develop five (5) quiz-type questions related to the content/reading assignments for this week.

It is a good idea to focus your questions on the topics from the Final Exam Study Guide for this week but not required. 

Use a clinical-based scenario in at least one question.

Use multiple-choice, select all that apply, or matching question format.  

Post your five (5) questions in the weekly discussion board. Do not provide answers to your five (5) questions in the initial post.

2.  Respond to a peer.  Preferably one who has not yet received a response.

Answer the five (5) quiz questions posted by one student peer. Answer questions that have not been responded to unless there are no available posts without a response already. 

Provide an evidence-based rationale for each of your answers to the five (5) questions. 

Provide a citation and matching reference is required from the course textbook for each of the five (5) rationales. 

Provide one evidence-based learning point related to the quiz questions.  Provide a current (within 5 years) citation and matching reference.  Sources may include course textbook, professional organizations, clinical practice guidelines, research studies, etc. 

3.  Respond to the peer who provided answers to your five (5) quiz-type questions.  If more than one peer responded to your questions, you only have to answer one (the first one preferably). 

Identify the number of correct answers to the five (5) quiz-type questions. 

Provide an evidence-based rationale for any incorrect answers as you explain the correct answer. 

Include a citation and reference for the correct answer from the assigned textbook for the course. 

Use positive and supportive communication to support a positive learning environment.

If no one responded to your questions, you may add an additional response to a different peer’s original set of questions or a response to a peer by adding further guidance or dialogue with scholarly reference.
