Theme
Assessment

This project took the form of vast numbers of quiz questions in Bb9, under the headings: Vocabulary, Morphology, and Syntax. The quizzes encouraged students to retake the same Test many times, offering different questions each time, in order to reinforce knowledge and enhance learning, with immediate feedback.

The team decided to write the quiz materials in-house (based on the course text book),as they found there were insufficient electronic teaching resources available for Latin at present.

Benefits:

The Student engagement with the vocabulary sections has been very strong, with results that I could see clearly in the final, traditional, examination. My goal for next year is to encourage students to engage as effectively with the more challenging morphology and syntax sections.
