Peer-to-peer MCQs

The peer-to-peer MCQ is a kind of cross assessment adapted to MCQs.

Participants are asked to answer a MCQ and then correct each other's MCQs, pointing out their mistakes and giving them advice on how to improve.

Why implement the MCQ in peer-to-peer mode?

Better understanding of mistakes
Students understand where their mistakes come from. They can receive different tips and tricks to find the right answer more easily next time

Reinforced learning
Students embed knowledge deeply by pointing out the wrong answers of others and explaining how to find the right answer.

Identification of learning
Teachers can quickly identify learning and non-learning and have all the interactions between students to highlight the best tips and tricks.

How does a peer-to-peer MCQ work?

On ChallengeMe, a peer-to-peer MCQ takes place in 3 steps with deadlines defined by the teacher. All interactions between students are anonymous.

Step 1: The response stage

The teacher adds his MCQ in the format he wants. They answer this MCQ directly on the platform.

Step 3: Displaying the results.

The participants find out their score and the advice they received on their wrong answers. They can, if they wish, evaluate the quality of this advice.

Step 2: The feedback stage

The participants are given MCQs validated in the previous stage. They have to mark the wrong answers on these MCQs. A correction is available if they have any doubts.

For each wrong answer found, the participants must give advice to help the recipient find the right answer next time.
