Abstract:     
The most compelling question faced by beginning law students is “How am I doing?” They crave feedback that can help them measure and improve their performance. West’s TWEN (The West Education Network) offers a quiz function that allows teachers to upload multiple-choice quizzes. Students can take the quizzes on line, on their own schedule, and receive instant feedback. The feedback can include, in addition to the correct answer, an explanation that refers to something in the casebook or course materials. TWEN also allows the teacher to monitor who has, or has not, taken any particular quiz and to track the performance of individual students or the class was a whole. The author explains how he uses nine multiple-choice quizzes, consisting of ten Multistate Bar Exam-style questions each, in his Contracts I course. It is his experience that frequent online quizzes can help students and teachers alike assess academic progress and enhance student success.
