  Abstract: We have implemented a component of student-generated assessment in an introductory physics course comprising exclusively non-majors, using the PeerWise online system. This poster presents details of how we have extended the previous instructional designs for PeerWise, shown to be capable of yielding high-quality questions authored by students, via modification of the six tutorials held throughout the course. A significant fraction of the tutorial content is composed of either studen- generated questions as problems to work through and/or explicit guidance designed to enhance the quality of student contributions. We present details of the change in quality of student-authored questions and explanations over time, mapping the former onto Bloom's Taxonomy and the latter onto a five-point scale.
