Here are some instructions for college instructors to use ChatGPT to author low stakes quizzes. By following these steps, you can use ChatGPT to create low-stakes quizzes that assess your students’ knowledge and understanding of course concepts.
Identify the Topic
Decide on the topic for the quiz. This could be a specific concept or a broad subject area.
Determine the Learning Objectives

Provide ChatGPT with the Question
Use ChatGPT to generate questions related to the learning objectives and the chosen quiz type. You can provide ChatGPT with a prompt, such as “Please generate five multiple-choice questions about the topic of X,” and it will provide you with questions to choose from.
Review and Edit Questions
Review the questions generated by ChatGPT and edit them as needed. Ensure that the questions are clear, concise, and aligned with the learning objectives.
Create Answer Choices
If you’re creating a multiple-choice quiz, provide ChatGPT with answer choices for each question. Ensure that the answer choices are plausible and that one option is clearly the correct answer.
Finalize the Quiz
Once you’ve reviewed and edited the questions and answer choices, finalize the quiz by creating a clear and concise set of instructions for your students, specifying the time limit, grading criteria, and any other relevant information.
Administer the Quiz
Administer the quiz to your students through your preferred learning management system (LMS) or other means of distribution.
Grade the Quiz
Once the quiz is completed, grade the responses according to the grading criteria you established.
Provide feedback to your students on their performance on the quiz, including areas where they did well and areas where they could improve.
