How to Write Self-Assessment Questions. Open Learning Papers. (Revised Version).
Paine, Nigel
This paper introduces the use of self-assessed questions (SAQ) in interactive learning material. SAQs have two related but separate functions in learning materials: SAQs sustain the student's concentration and breaks up the text, and SAQs help the student assess progress of learning at a particular point in the material. Examples are given of these functions of SAQs. Descriptions and examples of types of SAQs are given: (1) multiple choice; (2) true/false; (3) matching; (4) sequencing; (5) completion; (6) one word answers; (7) filling in blanks; and (8) short prose answers or direct questions. Samples are presented of two case studies with analysis of what the student was expected to do or accomplish. A list of conclusions and recommendations on using SAQs is included. (JD)
