I'm thinking about administering daily quizzes, in AP exam multiple choice format, on the assigned reading from the night before instead of giving written homework. I'd like to give study questions at the beginning of the week to guide their reading and studying, and so that they're not completely blindsided by quiz questions. I'd put the quiz questions on the overhead projector and have the students use their own notebook paper. I'm not sure what the protocol for taking attendance is, but I'd like to take attendance by collecting the quizzes in the morning. I'd also give my students the answers to the quiz after I collected the papers so that they could ask questions about anything they didn't understand. There would be no make-up quizzes; if a student has an excused absence, the missed quiz just wouldn't get averaged in (so 30/30 quizzes instead of 31/31 for example). The lowest quiz grade would get dropped at the end of the semester. I took a college class that worked just like this, and I feel it was a highly effective method of instruction. What do you guys think?
