Comments
This online multiple-choice questionnaire allows to conduct student-paced formative assessments in a fun and engaging way. As students take the quiz, they can see how their responses compare to the rest of the class while remaining anonymous. The students are able to review their responses immediately while still fresh in their minds rather than having to wait for a teacher to grade each individually. Quizizz has a very straightforward layout and the site does a great job of walking you through the quiz-making process step by step, so as not to overwhelm the user. Taking the quizzes themselves is also extremely intuitive. Once the students have entered the access code, all there is to do is select an answer to the questions as they appear. Type of learning: behaviourism ISTE Standards for students: Empowered Learner Weakness: requires internet access and electronic devices. Pedagogical values: self-directed learning, language development across the curriculum, contextualization.
