Abstract

I discuss the method of creating a library of questions for Astro 101 within the Sapling Learning homework system, as well as the philosophy behind the types of homework questions (and feedback) that are being written. The system’s features were built around meeting five basic goals: flexibility, engaging content, peer instruction, immediate instructional feedback, and exploration.
