Collaborative testing, an alternative to traditional testing, fosters interaction and collaboration among students. This article describes the use of collaborative testing using quizzes in an accelerated second-degree baccalaureate nursing program in order to enhance learning and retention of course content. Feedback from students was overwhelmingly positive, and most believed this strategy provided a structured method to their studying and acquisition of course concepts, which was particularly beneficial within an accelerated course format. © 2018 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
