Numbas for other Higher-ed

Numbas is a simple and adaptable way to create and share numerical tests. That isn't just limited to mathematics. Educators are discovering that Numbas helps them to challenge their students in a range of subjects, including chemistry, business, psychology and zoology.

Case Study: University of Leicester

Alex Goddard had recently joined the university as part of the teaching team in the Department of Chemistry. He was keen to give students a way to supplement their learning with online self-check tests.

“I was advised┬áto use Numbas for this purpose, and got to grips with it after playing around with it for a few days”, he said.

Writing the majority of questions himself, he offered the tests to students in the university’s Virtual Learning Environment.

He hopes to roll the tests out to more year groups, and deliver tests on different topics in future.


Numbas features full documentation which is always in line with the most recent version.
