Subject: Re: Length of quizzes

Cindy,

Well i guess the question you have to ask yourself is, what exactly is
this quiz for? Does it count towards their final grade, is it to help
you get feedback from your students, is it to improve on consolidating
their knowledge or perhaps its an extension type task. Im sure there
are many more reasons why one might quiz their students. Each of these
tasks will require different amounts of time whether your looking at
proficiency and accuracy or problem solving and extending your
students.

If time is the issue perhaps you could achieve your objective
alternatively. If you are testing many concepts at once you may want
to be more specific and have more shorter tests. 

In any case just try what your superior has said and honestly see if
his  suggestion improves your efficiency and if not, you might have
some evidence to persuade him of his view.
