Existing Questions / Courses

CALM was initially developed to aid instruction in the first year level of general chemistry at Indiana University Bloomington. Consequently most of its content centers on the field of chemistry. It is used both to provide homework assignments in the lecture courses as well as for pre-laboratory assignments in the laboratory courses. Last year CALM was successfully extended to a survey course in physics with the incorporation of essay questions. We anticipate implementing questions in CALM for physics and biology in the near future. If you are interested in extending CALM to other subjects, please contact us.

Types of questions implemented in CALM

  • Numerical
  • Textual
  • Graphical
  • Multiple choice
  • Multiple select
  • Essay

Developing Questions

We welcome faculty who are actively using CALM to develop content within their relevant disciplines. Interested faculty can present the question they desire in the CALM database to the CALM development team. As soon as it is entered in the database they are notified and asked to check that the question is implemented as intended. Once the question's implementation has been verified, it is available for assignment to students.
