Playing Games with Quizizz
Quizizz (http://quizizz.com/) is now integrated with Google Classroom! This is great news as it will make it easier to integrate it into my classroom. If you don't know, Quizizz is a great platform for reviewing material and assessing your students.
Quizizz most certainly brings out the competitive spirit in your students as they compete against each other as to who will have the title of Review Champion! Students enjoy the games as they compete to answer questions that were either created by you or by someone else. You see, before creating a quiz, you have the option of selecting from numerous other quizzes that were created by others. Simply type in the topic in the search bar and you are presented countless quizzes. The cool thing about doing the search is that you are presented with a preview of each quiz on the right-hand side, so you can look at the contents of a quiz before selecting it. Searching for World War I provided me with over 4,700 quizzes. As I said before, if you don't like the quizzes you are shown or if you want something a bit more specific to your subject matter, you can create your own.
Another great aspect of Quizizz is that you are provided with post game reports. The reports provide the teacher with invaluable data such as the percentage of accuracy for your class, the percentage of correct answers for each question, as well as individual student answers for each question. And, if you choose, you can either print the report or download as a spreadsheet.
If you're looking for a fun and easy way to review material with your students (and who isn't), you owe it to yourself to try Quizizz.
