The material consists of exam results among 458 students who for the first time answered a certain written exam on the last of four modules in an academic first-cycle (undergraduate) course in history at a Swedish university, distributed across ten course instances over eleven years, 2010-2020. The exam results consist of a score divided into points received on answers to the written exam and on points that each student was able to obtain from optional hand-in assignments before the written exam (quizzes). The material also contains information about the exam results from the two immediately preceding modules on the same course and at the same course instance. The data have been used to examine the extent to which the quizzes have affected the result on the final written exam and the extent to which the outcome has been affected by the examination result on the two immediately preceding modules.
