Utilizing Automated and Randomized Quizzes and Exams in Undergraduate Aerodynamics: Lessons Learned from a year of Remote Instruction

Joint Webinar on World Summit on Automotive and Autonomous Systems and International Conference and Exhibition on Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

September 17, 2021 | Webinar

Mark Nathaniel Callender

Middle Tennessee State University, USA

Keynote: RRJET


Introduction: Whether you are teaching Aerodynamics on-ground, remote, or fully online, your university-provided learning management system’s quizzing feature can be utilized to provide students with increased exposure to and practice with course material in a highly randomized and automated fashion that protects academic integrity while also reducing faculty workload. The presenter will describe how to create 1) questions of various types, 2) question libraries, and 3) quizzes and exams in a learning management system. The presenter’s university utilized Desire to Learn (D2L); however, the content of the presentation is transferrable to other systems. Special emphasis will be placed on properly programming Arithmetic Questions (2+2) and the use of Regular Expressions for Fill in the Blank Questions (FIB). The presenter will share lessons learned from the most recent year and a half of remote, asynchronous instruction that continue to have direct application in current on-ground classes. Conclusion: Autonomous lecture capture in undergraduate aerodynamics classes provides benefits to students and professors especially as courses across the Nation have shifted to Remote or Online formats..
