Development of a Web-Based Learning System to Engage Students in Question Generation Activities

Chun-Ping Wu and Shu-Ling Wu
Abstract—The strategy of student generated question engages students in deeply interacting with the newly learned contents, examining their learning outcomes, and practicing asking questions and generating answers. Grounded on the potential of this strategy, this study aims to develop a web-based system to engage students in question generation activities. A single group pre-and-posttest experimental design was adopted to further explore its effects on students’ learning gains. Sixty one college students participated in the study for four weeks. The findings show that students learning is significantly enhanced by the SGQ strategy. Furthermore, students’ perquisite knowledge is significantly correlated with the quality of the questions students generated. Last, students who generated questions of better quality are found to perform better in the post-knowledge assessment. Suggestions for instructional practice and future studies are provided.

Index Terms—Student generated question strategy, a web-based learning system, learning gain.
