Remember that Norwegian site that made readers take a quiz before commenting? Here’s an update on it: For one thing, people did really, really badly on the quizzes (although that could be due to a language barrier).
Innovative approach to limiting ill-informed public comments. This is a 6 month review of the programme.
This approach could be deployed in discussion forums in education but it would be an additional barrier (the original intent) to engagement. Could it be useful though for articles that challenge practice norms? It would perhaps cause learners to pause and reflect on their own practice and the new evidence presented before commenting (or more likely moving away to something else).
