By the end of this week you should be able to:

  • understand where the quiz fits into the tricky topic process
  • create tricky topic quiz questions which evaluate learning of specific stumbling blocks
  • identify different approaches to using tricky topic quizzes
  • set up and use some quiz questions for your tricky topic.
