Better understanding of student learning.
Teachers push notifications to student phones to direct their attention to specific instructional or assessment content at specific times, or students can use progression pathways to direct their own learning. Gamification elements include timed questions, progression trees, badges, points, and leaderboards.
Controlled studies involving thousands of students across multiple disciplines—the results of which are currently under peer review—demonstrate that Quitch improves student retention between 10 and 12%, and student learning by 7%.
Why Quitch is needed in Higher Education.
Quitch provides real-time analytics for teachers and administrators, focussed on metrics that address student engagement, time-on-task, and comprehension. A range of data dashboards are available to assist teachers and administrators to understand how their students are progressing.
Quitch supports a combination of video, text and audio instructional content formats; clear, simple progression paths for learners; and a range of assessment types including multiple choice and drag-and-drop questions.
“Subject of “Geotechnical Engineering” covers a wide range of topic in soil mechanics from theory to design. One of the issues we have had was lack of engagement and also not being able to assess students’ involvement in an ongoing manner. Quitch has given us the capacity to engage the students more effectively and to see how they progress with their understanding of topics. It is easy to use for students and at-hand at any time.”

“Quitch is an easy App to load questions for students to access. The app is also easy for students to download and use at their convenience and compatible with their mobile phones and other devices. It is great to know how many have been using it and students were very positive in their feedback.”

“We used Quitch with the full time MBA cohort at UWA for the first time in 2017. The engagement was fantastic with 90% of the cohort using the resource extensively. Students really enjoyed the convenience of it being accessible on mobile devices..”

“I use Quitch with my 1st year accounting students and they love it. It is completely voluntary and no marks attached and I still have over 150 students from a class of 220 participate.”
