The Kurztest App for Android and iPhone

Our Kurztest App provides short and simple quizzes for the students. The presented questions are based on past lectures (and updated according to the progress of the lecture) with the purpose to help the students revise basic concepts of the covered course contents.

This Kurztest App was delevoped at the Institute for Systems Theory and Automatic Control of the University of Stuttgart and accompanies the lecture "Einführung in die Regelungstechnik" at the University of Stuttgart. The app content is updated according to the progress of the lecture each winter semester (October - February). Since the lecture is given in German, this app is only available in German.

In this app, the students are provided with short and simple quizzes. The presented questions are based on past lectures with the purpose to help the students revise the covered material. After each lecture, a new set of questions bundled in so called 'Kurztests' are uploaded. The students get instant feedback on whether their answer was correct and even additional explanation via an information button is available whenever sensible. At the end of every short quiz, the students receives a summarizing feedback on his performance. Furthermore, the students have the possibility to go back to their answers to review their mistakes and finally also delete their answers to redo the test.
