Researcher: Gita Sedghi

Institution: University of Liverpool

Research Year: 2020

Project aims:

The aim of this project was to tackle the issue of poor performance of chemistry students in maths by using three-step online assessments in chemistry context based on a method of evaluating the quality of learning which suggests the structural increasing complexity of online tests enhances student learning. The online assessments were created and implemented in our VLE (Blackboard). The tests have been used in the Year 1 module which runs through the whole academic year.
