Engaging Tech Tools: Quizizz
I can't even say enough great things about Quizizz. Another tool that immediately turned me off because of its name. Anything with "quiz" makes me weary. But this tool does NOT disappoint. Quizizz is a tool that allows for teachers to give multiple choice assessments that are fun!
Students love it!
Students enjoy it because they can race to the top of the leaderboard by answers questions correctly (and bonus points for answers that come fast - if you turn on the timer!), they have funny memes, and students can do it over again if they aren't happy with their score!
Teachers love it!
Teachers like it because they can make their own quiz, they can find pre-made quizzes, or they can adopt pre-made quizzes to fit their needs! You can sort these quizzes into collections, assign them to classes with a simple connect code in a live game, or assign as a "homework" option. The homework option is generally my go-to. I keep a quizizz open for a few days to let students work on taking it as many times as they need.
Data, data, everywhere!
With each quizizz, teachers can access a report that tells you which question each child got wrong to better help with differentiation, creating small groups, and finding common misconceptions! My favorite part of the report? It tells you how long each student spend on each question. Did they fly through it and get 100%? Maybe it was too easy! Did they fly through it and struggle? Maybe students aren't trying their best and giving you their best effort! Did they take their time and still struggle? They are begging for help.
Keep students engages, switch it up, and try a quizizz!
