QuizTime is an online learning system consisting of highly relevant and practical content delivered one question a day, one concept at a time, using a web-app quizzing platform.
The QuizTime approach is a highly effective way to learn, based on repetition and retrieval of core concepts spaced out over time. Rather than a single information-dense presentation, QuizTime delivers “micro-chunks” of knowledge in the context of the clinical situations where the knowledge will be used.
Effective, Convenient, Fast, Fun. With QuizTime the knowledge comes to you, where you want it, how you want it, and when you want it. No need to attend live courses or spend time in front of a screen.
Studies using this spaced, retrieval-based approach to learning have shown superior knowledge retention and sustained performance improvement, in settings ranging from grade school to continuing medical education.
Questions are delivered once per weekday at a time and with a delivery method you select — by text or email. When you respond, you will immediately receive feedback, including the correct answer and a concise rationale with links to supporting resources. If you answer correctly, you will receive credit for the question once you acknowledge that you read the rationale. If you answer incorrectly, you will immediately be offered one more opportunity to answer. Each question remains “live” for 48 hours, but if you are unable to get to a question during that 48-hour-period, it will be presented to you at the end of the quiz. The point is learning, not testing!
