Pre/Post-Question Contribution Guidelines

Overview of Pre- and Post-knowledge check problems

Each topic should have a set of multiple choice questions (MCQs) that check students' knowledge and facility with the specific skill targeted in the instructional video. Three of these questions should be designated as pre-check questions; another 3 will be used as post-check questions. In each case, these questions will be followed in the module by a set of 2-3 MCQs designed to have students reflect on their confidence in completing the problem. You do not have to write these metacognitive questions because they will be standardized across the knowledge checks.

Students will be required to complete the Pre/Post knowledge checks as a part of the module. Student responses will help us evaluate the effectiveness of the instruction for that skill.

Pre-check questions

Pre-check questions should ask students to use the skill(s) taught in the video. Questions should be similar to those examples presented in the Instructional Video(s). Choose what you believe to be the main points of the video (or those points your team decides will be in the Instructional Videos during your initial conversation).

The only feedback to students for the proof of concept period will be whether their answer is correct or incorrect.

Post-check questions

Post-check questions should also ask students to use the skill(s) taught in the video. Questions should build on those examples presented in the Instructional Video(s). Choose what you believe to be the main points of the video (or those points your team decides will be in the Instructional Videos during your initial conversation). These questions can also help build students' facility with the skill by asking students to do a slightly more difficult problem each time. However, please do not expect the students to combine the targeted skill with a more difficult one. We would like each question to focus on a single skill as is appropriate.

The only feedback to students for the proof of concept period will be whether their answer is correct or incorrect.

How to submit Pre/Post Knowledge Check Problems

Submission will be via Google forms and docs.

This link is to a Google form (also below) that will collect necessary information and also direct you to submit a Google doc of your problem.
