What Instructors and Students Are Saying

“Overall, I’ve found that students produce higher quality writing when I’ve assigned InQuizitive than when I haven’t. I find a lot fewer mistakes.”

— Lauren Rocha, Merrimack College

“[InQuizitive activities] are much more interactive, which is always a better way to learn. Hands-on experience seems to ‘sink in’ much more than just multiple choice!”

— Shanon Frost, Owens Community College

“I find that my students appreciate the clarity a video provides.”

— Carrie Buttler, Del Mar College
