How to Use Google AI Bard to Craft Course Assessments 

#1. Creating a Generic Quiz with Bard

The first use case we'll explore is generating a generic quiz using Bard. By defining a topic, we can ask Bard to create a quiz without tying it to specific content, making it versatile for various subjects. 

We requested a 25-question quiz on the comparison between two popular learning management systems – Kajabi and LearnWorlds. Bard delivered a set of diverse questions, providing a great starting point for your own creative input.

2. Tailoring Assessments with Text Inputs:

Next, we delved into using Bard with specific text inputs, such as a blog post. Copying and pasting the content into Bard, we asked it to create a 25-question quiz based on the blog. 

This approach allows for a more tailored set of questions, aligning closely with the material you've already crafted. Bard's output becomes a valuable foundation, freeing you to add your unique touch and enhance the assessment's relevance to your course objectives.

3. Transforming Video Transcripts into Assessments:

While Bard has its strengths, we encountered limitations when attempting to use video transcripts directly. It seems Bard has a character limit and struggles with the direct reference to video content. In contrast, using ChatGPT for this task might be more effective as it has been around longer and is more adept at handling varied inputs.

Bonus: Generating Assessments from a Blog Link:

A delightful discovery was Bard's ability to generate assessments directly from a blog link. By providing the URL, Bard crafted a set of questions based on the indexed content. This method saves time and ensures that Bard uses the most relevant information available.

Key Takeaways:

  • Bard excels when provided with text inputs, such as blog posts or generic content. Utilize this feature to tailor assessments to your course material.
  • While Bard is a powerful tool, your creative input is crucial. Use Bard's output as a starting point and enhance it with your expertise, ensuring the assessments align perfectly with your course objectives.
  • Experiment with different inputs and assess Bard's performance in generating quizzes. Keep in mind its strengths and limitations for varied content types.
