Abstract

The development of six online quizzes to support students’ study of an introductory mathematics masters module at The Open University is described and their use evaluated. The quizzes were implemented using the STACK online e-assessment system which is powered by a computer-algebra engine. Evaluation of student feedback and an initial quantitative study of the effect of engaging with the quizzes on the final examinations marks suggest that further development of e-assessment at mathematics masters level is warranted.
