Using Shiny for Formative Assessments

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Shiny has become a popular approach for R developers to create interactive dashboards. Given the rich set of features available in Shiny, it has the capability for data entry and collection. This talk introduces a framework for using Shiny to conduct formative assessments whereby students both complete an assessment online as well as receive immediate feedback and scores on their performance. Examples using multiple choice assessments and Likert type self-report assessments will be provided along with feedback templates using R markdown for rapid development. The implications of this approach in course development will also be discussed.
