This Problem Roulette Add-On piloted in Stats 250 provides students the opportunity to create teaching solutions for selected questions in Problem Roulette. These solutions are voted on by participants in a tournament style peer review process. Students are able to see all solutions in ranked order for all problems during the review phase. The primary incentive to participate was to gain access to other students solutions, and to learn by teaching others.
Given the development of this module, it could now be used in future iterations for exam preparation for courses using Problem Roulette. With ongoing development of the hosting framework, this module could also be deployed in other contexts where the submission, review, and ranking process could help students collaborate.
This work was presented at the ISL poster fair on Mon, May 4, 2015. A similar presentation about Problem Roulette was made at the 2015 USCOTS (United States Conference on Teaching Statistics) including this work.
