Website Find: Quizizz

Cannot take credit for this find - heard about it at the Michigan Digital Learning Conference during +Leslie Fisher's keynote.  Quizizz (@quizizz)

Now that I've played a bit with it, I can recommend it as a very versatile and easy-to-use quizzing type site.  I say quizzing type site, because you can use it as a flash card type site (think Quizlet) or a class compete type site (think Kahoot) and probably a couple other ways I haven't thought of yet - but I'm sure others have. And, best part, it's FREE.

You have the ability to create your own quizzes, or use some that are already created.  If creating your own, the interface is drag and drop - and you can even add questions from other quizzes into your new one!

When running your "game," you have several options to toggle on or off to customize it to your teaching goal or your students learning style.  Don't want a leaderboard?  Turn it off!  No time?  No problem! (Quite frankly, not being able to turn off the timer is one of my major concerns with Kahoot - there are some students that feature is not good for.)

Students join the game very easily from any web-enabled device as long as they have access to a web browser.  Additionally, after they are finished, if you have it toggled on they see the questions along with the correct answers for review.

After your "game" is completed, you can see a report listing the questions students got right & wrong.  Great way to do some quick formative assessment.  You can even download the report - a few additions to it in a spreadsheet (like our student identification codes) and you could even upload it into your data warehouse.

If you've been looking for an easy tool to implement, you might just check this out!
