Answers after an Exam

Hi Guys,

 

I wanted to get some feedback from faculty at other schools using MindTap. Do you allow students to see the correct answers to questions they missed on a chapter quiz for example right after they take the quiz or a certain date after? This is a debate that we are having in my department. So if you let them see the correct answers right after or even a few days after, are you not setting yourself up for more instances of cheating or possibly students saving the answers to give to other students in future classes. But on the other hand isn't finding out what you did wrong part of the whole self-learning process and especially important in a purely online learning environment. Thoughts?

Re: Answers after an Exam

I use MindTap for homework assignments and I give daily quizzes outside of MindTap.  For all of these and my midterms and final exam, I release the answers after due dates.  I believe that students learn by reviewing their mistakes.  I try to change questions slightly each semester.  Also because I teach analytics, I can use different datasets each semester.
