Introducting Quantum: online low-stakes assessment

Quantum is a new project, led by CAS, whose goal is to support primary and secondary teachers in teaching and assessing the new Computing curriculum.

Quantum offers a large, free, online bank of multiple-choice questions; which you can use individually or build into collections of questions (quizzes). Your students complete your chosen questions online, including explaining their answers; you can use these explanations and misconceptions to drive teaching and learning. The questions themselves are crowd-sourced (you can write new ones of your own) and freely available to all.

In this Cambridge Hub meeting we will show you the platform and how to use it; we’ll explain why it is important and how it can improve your teaching practice. We’ll sit down together and write some new questions. The session will be suitable to primary and secondary teachers alike

Quantum is an open, pro-bono project. We are keen to have a dialogue with you about priorities, obstacles, and choices. More background here; white paper here.

The meeting will be led by Tim Oates (Cambridge Assessment), Miles Berry (Roehampton University and CAS founder), and Simon Peyton Jones (CAS chair).
