  • Bar the student if it is insufficient
  • Randomization and feedback possibilities
  • Numbering the short tests
pitfall 3
Pitfall 3
  • “Offering unlimited number of attempts”
  • The magical number 4
  • The “turning point of frustration”
  • Students will handle the system better with only 4 attempts
pitfall 4
Pitfall 4
  • “A six is a pass”
  • Minimum score of 80%
  • No more skipping difficult questions
  • Less guesswork
  • A rock-solid morale booster!
pitfall 5
Pitfall 5
