How to use Quizizz in the Classroom

Quizziz is an online tool that allows teachers to conduct student-paced formative assessments in a fun and engaging way for students of all ages. Teachers incorporate Quizizz into instruction, review, and evaluation to support students in Pre-K through College. 
It’s super simple to learn and completely free to use! After providing students with a unique access code, a quiz can be recorded live as a timed competition or used as homework with a specific deadline. After the quizzes have been completed, students can review their answers. 
Furthermore, the resulting data is compiled into a spreadsheet to give the instructor a clear visual of the students’ performance in order to analyze trends in which areas might need the most focus in the future. This immediate feedback can be used by teachers to revise future learning activities and alter the concentration of material by putting a more significant emphasis on concepts that students are struggling with.

Quizizz has a full library of ready-made quizzes

To play a game on Quizizz, you can either choose from a library of millions of public quizzes, or you can decide to create your own quiz! Once you have picked a quiz, you can conduct it in the classroom with Quizizz live mode or assign it as a homework game for students to practice at their own time. Students can use any device with a browser to join the game, and you get all the data both for individual students or the class as a whole!

Making your own Quizzes

When it comes to authoring quizzes, Quizizz stands out. A quiz could be created addressing almost any topic. Also, Quizizz doesn’t require projector because players see questions and answer options on their own screens. The question order is randomized for each student, so it’s not easy for players to cheat. You can start a quiz from scratch or copy and edit an existing quiz from their library of quizzes. Each question must be multiple choice and have between two and four possible answers and only one correct answer.
