James Denholm-Price has been using Numbas to test first year Linear Algebra students for more than two years.
Adopting Numbas allowed James to replace his multiple-choice paper question sheets with online tests, giving students the chance to test their knowledge of the subject using tests that changed each time.
The randomly-generated questions reduced the risk of copying, and up to 94% of students participated in the practice tests.
Teachers were able to test new e-assessment questions “live” before adding them to final summative assessments.
