Last week in Atlanta a teacher asked me about the possibility of running a “Kahoot night” in which her students and their parents would play Kahoot games at home together. There were two problems she was running into in organizing that idea. The first problem was timing the event so that everyone would sign-in at the same time. The second problem was that students couldn’t see the answer choices for the quiz. My solution for her was to try using Quizalize instead of Kahoot to host a quiz night for students and their parents.
Quizalize is a quiz game platform that will remind you of Kahoot. Like Kahoot, students play your quiz games on their laptops or tablets by going to the Quizalize website then entering their names and a class code. Students are awarded points for correctly answering questions quickly. Students are given feedback instantly on every quiz question that they answer. A total score is presented to students at the end of every quiz. What’s different about Quizalize is that you can have students play a quiz game as a classroom activity or you an assign to them to play at home. Either way that they play students receive immediate feedback and can track their own progress on a game when they play it multiple times.
In the video embedded below I provide an overview of how to create, distribute, and track quiz games in Quizalize.
