Before I started using Quizizz as an interactive tool for pre-assessments, post-assessments, and reviews, I hated seeing my students take yet another boring quiz on paper or online.
Quizizz is an online tool that makes assessment fun, interactive, and promotes a healthy dose of competition in your class.
What I love about Quizizz
- You have access to thousands of quizizz made by other users on almost any topic
- You can make your own quiz with your own questions and answer choices
- Live scoring-you can see how your students are performing on the spot
- Memes-after every questions, the students see a meme that either praises them for the right answer or encourages them to do better on the next question.
How I use Quizizz in my classroom
- Warm-up: as students begin class, they take a quick Quizizz that will either assess their knowledge from the previous lesson, or pre-assess their knowledge for an upcoming lesson
- Review: students love fun and interactive reviews, and I always use Quizizz to review for a test or benchmark
- Exit Ticket: what better way to assess your students understanding at the end of class than with a Quizizz that gives you live data
How I use Quizizz with other resources
- CommonLit: If you’ve read my post on CommonLit, you know that their activities only feature a very short assessment. Sometimes, I pair a CommonLit activity with a Quizizz to better assess my students
- Nearpod: If you’ve read my post on Nearpod, you also know that Nearpod features its own assessment tool, but it does lack fun graphics and the leadership board. I sometimes link a Quizizz to my Nearpod slides to make assessments more engaging.
Have you ever used Quizizz in your classroom? Let me know what your thoughts on, and as always, happy teaching!
