A quiz a day keeps poor grades away?

Could a quiz a day keep the bad grades away? A study published last week in PLOS ONE by professors from the University of Texas-Austin showed that giving brief online daily quizzes boosted student performance.

Karen Johnson‘s insight:

If this was just formative instead of summative I wonder how many students would engage with it.  As the students in the article say, it is frightening.  I don’t really like using MCQ for a summative assessment so does this mean I can’t make use of this idea?  I think it would help students but I’m trying to find a way to connect it to the summative assessment – any ideas?
