Abstract

In this paper we discuss how to exploit the use of the module Quiz, available in any e-learning platform, to improve mathematics competencies of engineering students. The use of quizzes aims to improve the learning process during its progress. Our use of self-assessment has combined with traditional lectures, as benefit, since it allows self-driven recovery learning paths. Much attention has been paid to construct effective close-ended questions apt to actually evaluate competencies and not only contents. Quizzes are also used as an effective tool to improve learning and overcome incorrect beliefs.
