Eight on-line quizzes were integrated into a first year physics unit at Edith Cowan University in semester 1, 2003. These quizzes were typically available for eight days after the content had been delivered in lectures and students were able to make a second attempt for each quiz using feedback from their first attempt. Students who attempted the quizzes overwhelmingly believed that they were easy to access and helped them learn physics. However, almost one quarter of all students did not attempt any quizzes and these students achieved poor overall grades.
