Compose Exam Questions After Lecture

Compose test questions immediately after you address the material in class. The material and cognitive levels at which you taught are fresh in your mind and should match the session’s learning objectives. This strategy ensures a supply of questions to use when you develop a quiz or exam. Alternatively, you can have your students develop these questions at the end of class or as homework and modify them as appropriate.
