Here's a quick quiz to test returning economic students that you can use either in class or set as homework. There are 10 multi-choice questions about Economics events that occurred during July and August 2017 to see whether your students were paying attention to the news during the vacation.

It uses a format called 'confidence-based' marking. So, before deciding their answer to each question the player must decide on their level of confidence in that answer (either low, medium or high). Different points are allocated depending on the level of confidence that they state, alongside whether they indicate the correct answer or not (!).
