SILVA, João Miguel de Almeida et al. Quiz: an electronic questionnaire for self-assessment and learning in genetics and molecular biology. Rev. bras. educ. med. [online]. 2010, vol.34, n.4, pp.607-614. ISSN 0100-5502. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-55022010000400017.
Knowledge of genetics and molecular biology has improved so much in recent years that it requires constant updating, especially considering that a major portion of the knowledge acquired during undergraduate training is outdated by the end of the course. A quiz on genetics and molecular biology was proposed as a new tool to deal with this issue in health sciences teaching. The quiz, developed by students in the courses on medicine and computer studies at UniFOA and oriented by their teachers, was applied and evaluated by 159 third-year medical students. The results showed excellent acceptance by the students, indicating increasing interest in the topics presented and the possibility of identifying each student's specific knowledge needs, thus facilitating feedback into the learning process. The quiz is a new teaching tool that will be updated and focused on the students' knowledge gaps, and will be offered as an e-learning or distance learning system
