Studies have shown that collaborative quizzes can: 

  • help with anxiety, improve self-confidence, and discourage cheating; 
  • improve student motivation and class preparation;
  • help with buy-in for other group learning activities in the curriculum;
  • promote reflective thinking and retention;
  • improve scores slightly for all students, not just those who perform poorly on individual quizzes; and
  • improve mutual trust among students in a course, which contributes to the learning atmosphere and encourages students to attend and participate.
