Although a number of existing systems support student-generated multiple choice questions, such questions tend to focus on lower-order cognitive skills. Free response questions are frequently used to evaluate higher-order thinking, but supporting student-generated free-response questions is challenging. StudySieve is a web-based tool that extends student-generated questions to the free-response domain. We report on the use of StudySieve for reviewing core content in three large undergraduate Computer Science courses. Students produce more content than required, provide feedback to their peers and report that they learn from question authoring, question answering, seeing the answers produced by their peers and evaluating those answers.
