This chapter explores the issue of students' preparation for class and how Web-based testing can be used to improve reading compliance and student learning. After reviewing the evidence that students typically do not prepare for class by reading textbook assignments, it explains the rationale for using quizzes to improve reading compliance and to facilitate learning. It then argues that using out-of-class, online quizzing is an efficient and effective way to improve reading compliance. It provides an example of the application of online quizzing in a large introductory psychology class and the lessons learned using this methodology.
