We read online that quizzes help people retain the information they learn, and we figured if we could make it fun then more people would want to study. Oftentimes it's difficult to get study groups together, but everyone is constantly on their phones so a quick mobile quiz wouldn't be hard to do.
What it does
Cram is a live social quiz app for students to study for courses with their classmates.
How we built it
We created an iOS app in Swift and built the backend in Python.
Challenges we ran into
It's very difficult to generate questions and answers from a given piece of text, so that part of the app is still something we hope to improve on.
What's next for Cram
Next, we plan on improving our automatic question generation algorithm to incorporate machine learning to check for question quality.
