Abstract Title: Using student-generated content to engage students in upper-division quantum mechanics
Abstract: Peerwise is an online learning environment in which students can author, answer, and give feedback on each other's multiple-choice questions. We describe the use of Peerwise in a junior-level quantum mechanics course over seven iterations. We describe measures of student engagement in terms of the use of the system and the improvement of questions. We discuss factors in the implementation that may have impacted engagement, including support for authoring high-quality questions, instructions on commenting and minimal requirements on authoring and commenting.
