Students typically come into the classroom with some base knowledge about biology, whether it is prior learning at home, in previous courses or from personal experience. Differentiating learning based on students’ previous knowledge can be a challenge in a large classroom, thus with the help of a diagnostic assessment for learning, we can cater the material to each student individually. In the past, we have typically completed quizzes on paper and it is time consuming to provide feedback. Google Form Quizzes provides the opportunity for instant feedback so that we can allocate time to do more learning rather than marking.
