Project Quantum is a free, crowd sourced bank of assessment questions suitable for Computer Science teachers looking to quickly assess their students knowledge and understanding of the topics they are teaching. Currently there's over 8,000 Multiple Choice Questions for you to access across a range of topics, and this is constantly growing, with people submitted more questions all the time.
“What I love about Quantum is that it easy-to-use, quick to setup, and the insights I get into what children know is invaluable” Iain Davis, CAS Master Teacher
So why use Quantum?
- It's FREE...forever! You can create an account, add your class to it and build as many quizzes as you like all for free
- It saves you time and reduces your workload by providing a bank of crowd-sourced, self-marking questions
- The questions are mostly written or quality checked by CAS teachers, and cover all of the national curriculum for computing. It's crowd-sourced, so if you don't find questions you like you can add ones of your own; the collection is constantly growing
- The analysis feature enables you to analyse pupils' responses to identify common misconceptions and measure progress.
"I love the Quantum quizzes. They allow me to give a relevant quick test with misconceptions that I can use with my whole class to find out what they know and where the misconceptions are! Brilliant! Tig Williams, CAS Master Teacher
Get started now
- Start with Quantum quizzes, a bank of 250+ quizzes on the computing curriculum, ready for use. If you don't find a quiz you like, you can easily make new ones by choosing from the collection of nearly 9,000 questions on computing. Here is everything you need to know to get set up and set your first class quiz. And, here's a guide to using Diagnostic Questions too.
- Once you start to use Quantum quizzes, you'll soon want to organise map topic-based quizzes onto your scheme of learning, with the order and timing you want, using spaced repetition to revisit topics you covered earlier. This sequencing is handled by the Eedi platform, and integrated by SIMS. We are looking for a dozen pilot schools to trial this system; talk to Tig Williams if you are interested in being a pilot school.
And here's a quick video to help you get started.
