Multiple choice quizzes and exams
Multiple choice assessments are simple to create on D2L with the use of the quiz banks. Quizzes have numerous options including feedback and automatic grading. Multiple choice questions can be written to test higher-level learning objectives, but it is important to make sure questions align with the learning goals. It is very easy for multiple choice questions to end up only testing recall and recognition. Also, with online courses, instructors need to realize that students will have access to all course materials during multiple choice assessments unless proctoring options are used. Additionally, D2L has the ability to set time limits for assessments, which can limit the student's’ ability to consult their notes or other content.
