[h] Sample: Biology quiz

[q] Mitosis

[l] Centrosome

[fx] No. The centrosome is the “microtubule organizing center” for the spindle fibers

[f*] Good!

[l] Chromosome

[fx] No. The chromosome is two strands of DNA held together at their centers by the “centromere”

[f*] Correct!

[l] Nuclear membrane

[fx] No. The nuclear membrane disappears during cell division

[f*] Good!

[l] Spindle fibers

[fx] No. The spindle fibers pull the chromosomes to each side of the dividing cell

[f*] Very good!

[q] To what structure in this eukaryote cell is the number 2 pointing?

[c*] The cytoplasm

[c] The membrane

[c] The nucleus

[c] A ribosome

[f] Excellent!  The cytoplasm is the watery main body of the cell.

[f] No, the membrane is the outside surface of the cell.

[f] No, the nucleus – a fairly large, round body near the center of eukaryote cells – holds genetic information.

[f] No, ribosomes use messenger RNA to create proteins.

Customize – colors, card size, audio and video

Card size — specify size, whether size will expand to accommodate content or scroll to see content.

Include audio and/or video anywhere — question/flashcard front, choices, answers/flashcard back.

Edit with Wizard – menu-driven WYSIWYG – select new question or card type; edit exactly what users will see

Choose question/card type (multiple-choice, hangman, etc.)

Fill in question, choices, feedback, etc.  Edit exactly what will be displayed.

Choose options — Introduction, Exit text, Header, border — from easy menu.

Track student progress – questions correct, flashcards done – by quiz/flashcard deck and by class

Set up students/classes – copy and paste data, or provide students a code for “self-registration.”

Assign quizzes and flashcard decks to classes.

View student progress/scores — totals for each student and each quiz/deck by class; details by students and selected quiz/deck; details by selected student over quizzes and decks.

Student pages – a great learning tool! Students make their own and take each other’s quizzes and flashcards

Teachers know well the benefits of “learning by teaching.”  Allowing students to create their own teaching materials — quizzes and flashcards — is an engaging way to implement a learning-by-teaching strategy.

Students can log in to the Qwizcards wizard with their student username and password to make and save their own quizzes and flashcards.

Students can access an index page that provides links to all of their classmates’ quizzes and flashcards.

Students in a class — and only those students — can view and add comments on their classmates’ work.

The instructor gets a special view of each student’s work: quizzes and flashcards in a “preview format” that shows all questions and flashcards at once.

The instructor can leave feedback that is visible only to the student who created the quiz or flashcard deck.

Save questions/cards to database; re-use elsewhere; mix-and-match

Save a quiz or flashcard deck in database as a “dataset”.

Include questions/cards from saved “datasets” in other quizzes and decks — change/update the “master” and the changes will appear everywhere that question or card is used.

“Mix-and-match browsing.”  Look through available questions and cards — including from other creators — and use them (with permission!) in your quizzes and flashcard decks.

Manage permissions — allow or prevent others from using your questions/flashcards.

Use anywhere – WordPress plugin, Google Sites, Facebook, etc.

Create directly in WordPress editor with plugin.

Enter text shortcodes — for example “[q]” for a question.

Or use the WYSIWYG wizard (available within the WordPress editor).

Or create on Qwizcards site (with Wizard) and use anywhere with “embed code.”

Use embed codes and instructions provided for Facebook pages, Google sites (Classic and New), WordPress (without the Qwizcards plugin), simple JavaScript for your own site and others.

Or include the Qwizcards scripts in your own site/pages.

Create quizzes and flashcards with shortcodes.

[q] In the diagram below, which number is pointing to the phospholipid bilayer?

[textentry single_char=”true”]

[c] 1

[f] No. Number 1 is pointing to the tail of a phospholipid. In the context of membranes, a channel is a structure that lets molecules pass through (like a bridge or a tunnel). What looks like a channel?

[c] 2

[f] No. Number 2 is pointing to a phospholipid head. In the context of membranes, a channel is a structure that lets molecules pass through (like a bridge or a tunnel). What looks like a channel?

[c] 3

[f] No. Number 3 is pointing to a protein channel. Here’s a hint: the term “bilayer” means “two layers.” What looks like it’s made of two layers?

[c*] 4

[f] Excellent. Number 4 is pointing to the phospholipid bilayer.
