The Fenix Worksheets allow you not only to build quizzes with questions created directly in Fenix for simple assessments (basic numeric entries, multiple choice, etc.) but still support exercises with random parameters when they are imported in a compressed (zip) .xml format.
The advantage in this system is the creating (with different options for giving marks, feedback, etc.) and distributing a form, accessing in real-time a list of students enrolled in a given UC, all automatically. It is possible to control students’ logs in real-time.
- Allows students to access after authenticating with Fenix.
- It generates a spreadsheet (digital results) that can be consulted in real-time, while the Form is active, allowing to change answers and evaluation exercises individually or together.
- It allows the teacher to obtain an excel spreadsheet with the results (individually or together) at any time during the semester.
- It is possible to create different types of simple questions (basic numeric entries, multiple choice, etc.), and create forms for assessments, self-assessments or questionnaires.
- It is possible to use question database (randomly or not) so that each student has their own assessment questions.
