    • What is PeerWise?
    • Free, online multiple choice question (MCQ) authoring and sharing system.
    • Students create their own questions.
    • Students answer, rate and comment on their peers’ questions.
    • How did we introduce the system?
    • Introductory group activity in workshops.
    • Simple exercises to build cognitive ‘scaffolding’.
    • Example question given as template.
    • Set the quality bar very high.
    • How did the students make use of the system?
    • Assessed coursework task: write 1 question, answer 5 questions, comment on 3 questions.
    • Mid-semester task deadline:
    • End-of-semester task deadline:
    What standard of questions did they write? Usually very good, sometimes outstanding.
    • Does using PeerWise influence course result?
    • Higher levels of PeerWise engagement (lighter bars) correlates with better exam performance for all but one quartile.
    • Strongest influence from question writing activity.
