Do you have a collection of automatically graded quizzes on iLearn that ChatGPT can now complete effortlessly? Wondering about your next steps? 

You have two options to consider: 

Option 1: Run Quizzes in Tutorials 

You can continue to use quizzes in your tutorials, much like some of your colleagues have done earlier in the year, to ensure student learning. However, there’s an alternative worth exploring (keep reading). 

Option 2: Shift the Grading Focus 

Instead of grading for accuracy, think about awarding students a participation mark for their reflections on the quizzes. 

How does this work? 

Ask students to identify the most challenging aspects of the quiz and how they plan to improve. Alternatively, they can delve into why certain aspects were difficult for them. 

These reflections can be shared in a Q&A forum, where students can see others’ submissions only after they’ve posted their own. Encourage students to comment on each other’s work. 

What will students be graded on?  

Simply completing a certain number of these tasks, which can be tracked automatically by iLearn, can serve as a participation mark. While it may require some initial oversight to ensure quality (e.g., addressing ‘low-quality contributions’), this approach allows you to keep using quizzes, have a meaningful participation component, and, most importantly, promote student reflection and engagement in peer discussions.

I'm a 'long-term' Mq girl. I did my PhD here and taught on different courses, ranging from 1st year to PhD students. I now work in Learning and Teaching, which I love. I have 2 young kids and a dog, and I love meeting other Mq people, so give me a shout if you'd like to talk 'learning and teaching' or would like to brainstorm together.
