Student growth is a hot topic within ETH right now, increasing the need for efficient and scalable assessment solutions. STACK is a Moodle question type particularly suitable for the large-scale assessment in quantitative disciplines: it can evaluate short text answers as mathematical expressions and check their correctness, ask for graphical solutions, implement complex decision trees for multi-question problems, and more. This allows for more flexibility compared to static multiple choice questions while still offering a fully automated grading/feedback process, including the possibility for partial credit.
In this event we will hear from the following presenters about their implementations of STACK questions in their lectures:
ETH Community of Practice
Together with LET we run a community of STACK users:
You are welcome to join! We o er many useful links to further documentation, question banks, events, a forum for questions, etc.
We’re happy to organize something.
Dr. Andreas Steiger (D-MATH)
Dr. Andreas Steiger (D-MATH) will give a short introduction to STACK and then explain how he uses STACK as a Lernelement in his first year analysis course for D-MAVT for more than 700 students.
Prof. Dr. Dennis Kochmann (D-MAVT)
Prof. Dennis Kochmann (D-MAVT) will show how he uses STACK in his engineering mechanics course to provide the 570 second-year Bachelor’s students with time on task during the semester.
Dr. Meike Akveld (D-MATH)
Dr. Meike Akveld (D-MATH) will explain how she uses STACK both as a Lernelement and to provide extra practise material in her first year analysis course for D-BAUG with around 200 students.
