PeerWise is a free online learning tool that enables students to collaboratively create,
share, answer, evaluate and discuss their own practice questions with explanations and

500,000 students, from 80 countries, have used PeerWise to create and share more
than three million practice questions. More than 60 peer-reviewed studies have shown
PeerWise to be an effective tool for supporting student learning.
