Quizzical is educational software designed to help students engage more deeply with course material. It has two major facets:
i) students are assigned one or more dates to create multiple choice questions; and,
ii) all the best questions (as vetted by professor/TA) are available in a quiz pool, allowing each student to take practice quizzes and prepare for course midterms, tests, and exams.
The Quizzical software was written and tested at University of Toronto Scarborough, and it is now integrated with Quercus using LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability).
