We have focused on making the question experience even better by giving you more feedback on progress as you ask questions and in the overview. And it is now easier than before to start a question session and to select questions.
More and more material is being added all the time and we are working to make your experience as good as possible.
Easier selection of questions
With a new cleaner tool for selecting questions, it is now easier to make selections based on book, chapters and previous results. You quickly see how many questions the question session will have.
By choosing only questions where you answered incorrectly in the past, you get much more effective learning.
Progress over time
You can now see the points that you accumulate within each book part and see which points you answered correctly or incorrectly within a book part.
In this way you can see how you are developing as you study. These points are also linked to answer markings within the chapter.
More intuitive score information
While doing a question session you can now see your current result in a clear diagram.
During the summer, we started a collaboration with the Surgery course held at Gothenburg University hospital, Sahlgrenska. Thanks to this collaboration, we have gained access to all exam questions that we have now largely incorporated into the system.
We have started to enroll users on the Cortexio site Hypocampus and it feels very good. Everyone on the Surgery course has received invitations and we have already received very positive reactions, thanks for that!
In the picture you see Elias speaking to the class when we were visiting to collect feedback.
Since the product is still under development, there are great opportunities to influence. So take the chance and send feedback, either inside the system or by mail. Something that many have already done, thank you very much.
If you feel like joining one of our sprint demons, where we go through what we have been doing for the past two weeks, then just give it a go.
We are currently working on developing the question section on the Cortexio.
Often associated with online questionnaires are the classic multiplechoice (MCQ) questions. These types of question were the ones we started with.
Material text questions
But in order to make it a little more challenging, we also want to be able to have questions where you do not get any alternatives, but you have to enter the whole answer yourself. This opens up a lot of problems when it comes to the correction. Should the computer interpret the answer and find some keywords in the answer? It can be very complicated! Instead, we have chosen self-correction, something that feels very fair.
You first get a question and write down your answer.
When you are satisfied with your answer, click Correct and see the answer highlighted in the text material.
You now have to decide how well you knew the answer to the question yourself.
Your answers are then linked to the text material so you know what you need to read more about. More about that and personal statistics in upcoming posts.
