Effect of online practice exams on student performance
written by Muxin Zhang, Andrew Engel, Timothy Stelzer, and Jason W. Morphew
Online practice exams have been important tools for students to prepare for their actual exams in our large introductory-level physics courses at the University of Illinois. Using data collected in the past few years, we found that, although students valued these online tools, their participation in the practice exams did not correlate with their actual exam performance. We also found that, with our old practice exam delivery format, students' performance in the practice exams might not reflect their actual abilities and could give them an "illusion of understanding".
