INCORPORATING MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS INTO STATICS COURSE: A CASE STUDY OF VIRTUAL PLATFORM VERSUS TEXTBOOK METHODOLOGY

J. Barbosa, J. Restrepo Ochoa, J. Arenas Berrio

EAFIT University (COLOMBIA)
Traditionally, textbooks for Statics in Engineering request the final answers of the exercises without providing a guide for the students to verify step by step their procedure with partial answers, so that a virtual platform was used to implement multiple-choice questions with single response as an alternative to guide students in the solution of exercises. This work presents the use of the learning management system, Moodle, with embedded answers (cloze) to program the topics of the course through exercises and apply assignments and tests with multiple-choice questions with single response methodology, as a result, we compared exercises developed in the platform with exercises on the book about structures of engineering, and it is obtained a better procedural guide for students. In conclusion, it can be said that the method used in the Statics course in EAFIT University is a good pedagogical practice because students can perform a partial verification of the answers.
