The culture of cheating has been around forever. Students have long been keeping cheat-sheets in their pockets, writing answers down their arms, and dropping their pencils on the floor to pass answers to friends. We knew those tricks as kids. However, with the advent of auto-grading quiz technology, many teachers are even more nervous about the security of their assessments.

Maybe it’s time to rethink the structure of our quizzes instead. If we are still creating quizzes where the answers can be Googled, we are not changing with the times and may, in fact, be increasing our students’ temptation to cheat.

In the video below, which is shared from my weekly Tech Tuesday Facebook Live sessions at 8PM EST, I will share with you five tips for changing your mindset on quiz creation. I’ll also share three specific ways you can quiz in a way that creates easy grading plus shows deep content knowledge from students:

  1. The Personal Dictionary Plus Frayer Model Quiz
  2. The One-Question Quizzer
  3. The Fill-in-the-Blank Reading Quiz
