Activity Description

Quizizz can be used as a formative assessment to find out what students already know about a topic or it can be used as a review to find out what was learned. You can create and play quizzes live or for homework. Quizizz does not require a classroom projector. Learners see the questions on their device and can work at their own pace. There is even a homework mode where learners can take your quiz outside the classroom.

Formative assessments are not normally given for a grade, but they are given to inform the instructor where help is needed so every learner can be successful. Quizizz is limited to multiple-choice questions, but memes make feedback fun. There is a free app for iOS devices but currently not for Android; however, players can access the game through any Web browser.

  2. Select Public (In top navigation bar) and peruse games already made.
