Making Homework Work: Using Moodle Quizzes to Make an Interactive Homework System


Homework is sometimes viewed as a necessary evil in education. It is necessary because students need additional practice beyond the time during the school day. However, there have been many expressions of the failings of homework, most notably by Alfie Kohn.

This presentation will discuss a wide variety of components necessary to making homework an effective tool to promote student learning. Using Moodle quizzes as the backbone (along with progress bars and forums), students can have a productive homework experience that solves many of the identified issues with homework. The presentation will focus on my experience teaching chemistry in an American high school but will be relevant to anyone who uses practice style homework.
