We all have had that moment when you have read your notes enough times and all you want is an opportunity to test your understanding. Well, now you do not have to wait for the lecturer to come with a test for you to know how well you have internalised the course content.
On IQmates, we are introducing practice questions you can attempt anytime, anywhere in any available course! As seen from the pictures above, you now have the option to watch revision tutorial videos or attempt questions (see image 1 above). These questions are sourced from carefully selected IQContributors who are mainly university tutors and you can be attempt them in sections or topics. This feature is also available on IQmates’ mobisite! You don’t need to be on your computer to test your knowledge – now you easily attempt questions, learn and revise your course content on a taxi or bus home! This is in line with our Learn On The Go initiative (see images below).
You can keep track of the number attempts you took to get a question correct. Every correctly answered question is marked green and every incorrect one is marked red. If you do not know how to answer a question or fully understand the answer, you are able to “buy” a tip or an explanation. The word buy is in quotes because you will use your IQPoints as currency. The points are gained by contributing in discussion groups, doing activities like sharing IQmates to your social media accounts, and attempting questions in our general knowledge IQ-Quiz game (this is explained in another Admin blog post).
The practice questions make use of our feature we call Randomised Options. What this simply means is, say for example option A is South Africa, B is Zimbabwe, C is Tanzania and D is Lesotho, when the question is viewed again, the options are randomly rotated around so that, maybe, now A is Lesotho, B s Tanzania, C is South Africa and D is Zimbabwe. This is to help you engage with the question and not only cram the option. Tied in with tips and explanations, this feature makes learning much better and challenging. We are working on a variety of other question types that will test you even further and better prepare you for tests and exams.
