The goal of this study was to determine if on-line out-of-class quizzing would lead to increases in (a) classroom engagement (b) academic performance and (c) preparation perception of college students. Twenty-four sophomore level students enrolled in a required functional anatomy course participated in this study. Results from this study indicate that on-line quizzing had a statistically significant impact on some indicators of student classroom engagement. However, on-line quizzing had no statistically significant impact on academic performance as evidenced by test scores. Finally, student perceptions, as a result of on-line quizzing significantly improved.
