QuizWright gets a Question Bank

We’ve added a Question Bank feature to CALI QuizWright®, our formative assessment system. The new feature uses multiple choice questions selected from CALI Contracts Lessons. The 150+ contracts questions are available to everyone who uses QuizWright. Over the course of the fall semester we plan on adding more questions, both in contracts and in other areas of the first year curriculum including torts and property.

With one click you can add questions from the public Question Bank to your personal question bank. You are free to edit your copy of a question, customizing it for your class. Questions can be added to as many quizzes as you’d like.
