Using quizzes in class is an engaging form of assessment. If you get students to create the quizzes themselves, it is a way to adding depth and challenge to their learning.
There are a number of online quiz producing applications available to choose from, this post specifically focuses on Quizizz.com which is what I’m currently using with some of my classes.
The reason I gave Quizizz.com a go, was partly due to this image posted on Twitter
I had been using Kahoot previously but liked the way Quizziz displayed the questions on each players device and also allowed players to progress at their own pace.
As previously mentioned, I get my students to create quizzes as a task to consolidate their learning whilst adding depth and challenge. Below is a link to a booklet I produced in Book Creator to guide them through the setup process.
Download a copy of the booklet here.
Below are photos of templates given to the students to plan their quizzes.
Once their planes were completed they created their quizzes within the application.
Completed Quizizz where then shared to the class via Edmodo and posted on the students individual maths blogs.
