Here Is An Excellent Formative Assessment Tool to Use in Your Class

December 15, 2015Quizizz is a great web tool we discovered through Learning in Hand. Quizizz allows you to create interactive quiz games to use in your instruction for a number of educational purposes including formative assessment. Quiz games you create have up to 4 answer options including a correct answer. You can also add images to the background of your questions and customize the settings of your questions the way you want. When your quizzes are ready you can share them with your students using a generated 5 digit code.

My Reports section in Quizizz provides you with data and stats about your students performances. You will be able to track how many students have answered your questions, questions left to be answered and many more. You can even download these stats in the form of Excel spreadsheet. Another excellent functionality that has been recently added to Quizizz is ‘Homework’. Homework  ‘allows you to set a Quizizz as homework, and keep it open for up to 2 weeks. Students can play at any time and from anywhere.’Here are some interesting features you can customize in the settings of your quiz game:

Turn Question Timer on to make your quiz games more competitive. Students get more points for faster answers.
Turn on ’Show Memes’ to display funny pictures after each question in your quiz games
Make your games more engaging by turning on ‘Play Music’. This plays music on student devices.
