Abstract: Generally itembanks are inaccessible to students. Current use of itembanks focus on the teacher as having responsibility to organise questions (place them in pools, associate them with course content) and make them available/deliver them to students. This limits students to the teachers perspective and to the questions that the teacher has made available. As the practice of itembanking increases it may be appropriate to encourage students to use questions from pools not directly prepared by their teacher. A mechanism for searching across itembanks and sharing recommendations with peers would be of help in facilitating this. We describe QuestionBuddy, a collaborative filter based question portal for students, built to study student usage of, and attitudes to, such a system.
