The unique feature of PEERTEST is that students can answer each other's questions and view and rate each other's answers.
Teachers and students can create an account for free. With a class code, students become members of a class.
Students create questions about the learning material. The teacher can see all questions and determine which questions can be answered by their peers.
Everywhere, students are taught to become competent at answering questions and to remain incompetent at asking questions
Throughout education, the majority of classroom questions are asked by teachers and not by students.
We use as little as possible the services of companies that make money by selling user data. That is why we use protonmail, for example, for our mail traffic.
PEERTEST is developed by Sam de Vlieger. Sam works as a philosophy and economics teacher at a secondary school in the Netherlands. The development of PEERTEST started when he was looking for a way for students to take a test and also be able to check each other's answers. In 2019, he received financial support from Radboud University, Nijmegen. Next to teaching philosophy, he is working to further develop and spread PEERTEST to create more practices where students come up with their own questions!
