Abstract

This study reports on the use of online quizzes and further reading opportunities in a first-year Exercise Physiology module and whether this innovation provides learners with regular assessment opportunities and, more importantly, feedback on their progress. It also investigates whether the provision of further reading allows students to develop their own understanding and encourages a deeper level of learning, and whether these changes to the running of the module led to an improved pass rate and at the same time increased student satisfaction and engagement.
