Guidelines on Self-Assessment for Students

Self-assessment questions in various forms (multiple-choice questions, image labelling, sequence sorting, extended matching questions, etc.) will help students assess their understanding of your online lecture.  In 2019/20 academic year, we have received very positive feedback from students about the availability of self-assessment questions, indicating that it helped reinforce their learning after watching e-learning videos; hence the Teaching and Learning Deanery strongly recommends all video lectures to be supplemented with 2-3 questions per video.

We encourage you to provide questions that cover the scope of your teaching content and some other questions that are at a similar difficulty to exam standards. Please provide explanation for all answers (correct AND incorrect).
