Abstract

For 4 weeks, a total of 91 sophomore students started their classes with a short multiple-choice quiz. The students had to answer the quiz individually, view feedback on class activity, revise their initial answers, and discuss the correct answers with the teacher. The percentage of students that selected each question choice and their self-reported confidence and preparation were the three metrics included in the feedback. Results showed that students were relying mainly on the percentage metric. However, statistical analysis also revealed a significant main effect for confidence and preparation metrics in questions where the percentage metric was ambiguous (i.e., several choices with high percentages).
