Extending the Power of the Quiz for Active Learning: Let Them Write it, Give it, Grade it and Take it!
Using role reversal to foster active over passive learning, high levels of engagement with course material (leadership theories), and higher order thinking about the course material, students take on a peer-teaching role through the development of criteria based quizzes that they write, give, grade and take. An overview of the required components of the learning activity for knowledge acquisition and higher order learning about leadership theory, teaching and debriefing notes, and student responses are provided. This learning activity was designed for a required, online leadership course for MBA students in a program that is typically set in traditional classrooms. For many this is their first online course. This assignment is given at the beginning of the course on material that will be drawn on throughout the course.
