The authour extends special thanks to

for her continuous support and in
developing Examopedia to its current state. This study presents data on an M level and a Level 1 group (N=38 and 58 respectively)

The Response rate was 52% over all. (53% and 51%)

Used 25 Likert scale questions and wo free text boxes.

Also Google Analytics was used to capture site usage data. 95% respondents agreed that Examopedia ‘helped them identify topics for revision’.
95% respondents agreed that the collaboration enabled by Examopedia ‘helped them revise better’.
95% respondents thought that Examopedia provided ‘valuable peer and tutor feedback’.

90% respondents thought, of which 35% strongly agreed, that Examopedia helped ‘broaden their knowledge of some topics’.

80% respondents thought, of which 45% strongly agreed, that Examopedia helped ‘increase their depth of understanding’.

70% respondents that Examopedia ‘helped reduce exam related stress’.

100% respondents, of which 65% strongly agreed, that they will use Examopedia ‘again where possible’.

Sample free text comments from questionnaire:
•Examopedia was very interactive and enlightening and went long way to help clear doubts
•Activate it in the Christmas holidays
•Only a few people contribute, most did not try to solve any questions
•Very useful to read what others are thinking about some particular question.
•Some of the answers can be confusing Conclusion Examopedia was used mainly during 15-20 days in the run up to the exam by a majority of students.
Multiple edits show how contributions, guidance, further contributions made revision an interactive and less stressful process.
The site encourages student centric learning as guidance is provided on specific topics that students have actually shared.
The site also is a teacher centric tool to deliver Just-in-time teaching if needed.
Many students confirmed that the service helps address the issue of anxiety and stress related with exam.
There were less active contributors and more passive users for Examopedia.
However, the majority of the students did benefit from it and are willing to use it again.
There are technical issues that we have learnt lessons from and have decided to make the necessary changes to further improve the student experience in using the service.
