Quizalize: Student Response System

Today I worked with a 4th grade class that was reviewing place value, number sense and multiplication.

We started off our lesson by playing a review game using Quizalize. Quizalize is a student response system (similar to Kahoot, Quizizz, Class Responder, etc.) that really engages students! The teacher wanted to review place value and number sense with her students so I made a quick review game. Making quizzes in Quizalize is easier than ever!

Once you create your FREE teacher account and are ready to make a quiz, simply click “+New Quiz” and add your questions. You can add images, change your timer for each question, etc.. I also like how you can add an explanation for the correct answers. Questions can be multiple choice or unscramble the letters in the answer.

Will you Quizalize your Class Progress?

One of my most popular posts is this one, a comparison of Kahoot!, Socrative, and Quizizz, three great formative assessment tools. Each of them has a quizzing feature with some gaming elements that make learning fast-paced and fun. This week I tried Quizalize, another formative assessment tool that will give them some competition with some of their best features plus some extras.

Des quizz pour enseigner en jouant

Le vieux quizz a vécu, place maintenant à Quizalize, une plateforme de création de questionnaires plus à même d’intéresser ces générations habituées aux jeux depuis belle lurette.

La création d’un questionnaire se fait le plus simplement du monde puisqu’il suffit de lui donner un titre et un thème. Le plus compliqué sera donc de formuler vos questions et de proposer jusqu’à 4 réponses potentielles. Si vous voulez ajouter un niveau de difficulté, il vous suffira de limiter le temps de réponse entre 5 et 120 secondes par question posée. Une fois créé, votre quizz peut être partagé par code unique, ce qui permet de suivre facilement les résultats pour chaque étudiant. Ces résultats sont consultables en ligne et en direct, le professeur ou le formateur peut donc identifier facilement qui a besoin d’aide sur la matière vue. Notez que Quizalize se lance tant sur un PC que sur une tablette ou un smartphone. Il est également possible de former des équipes dans une classe, l’équipe gagnante étant celle réalisant le plus de points sur un questionnaire donné.

Le jeu, la compétition et la possibilité d’apporter un enseignement différencié sur la base des résultats séduira certainement les professionnels de la pédagogie et plus particulièrement ceux férus de technologie. Qui plus, l’outil est gratuit !

Quizalize – A Fun Quiz Platform

Quizalize is a newer quiz game platform that reminds me of Kahoot. Like Kahoot, students play your quiz games on their laptops or tablets by going to the Quizalize website then entering their names and a class code. Students are awarded points for correctly answering questions quickly. Students are given feedback instantly on every quiz question that they answer. A total score is presented to students at the end of every quiz.

Online Learning Game Site Quizalize Adds New Feature I Like A LOT

Quizalize is a relatively new addition to The Best Ways To Create Online Tests. It’s very similar to Kahoot.

My big critique of both Quizalize and Kahoot has been that neither have allowed students to see how they are faring against their classmates in answering the questions, which is an important component (used appropriately) in using them as games. That’s why I’ve featured an alternative called Quizizz on my The Best Websites For Creating Online Learning Games list over the first two. Quizizz lets students see their standing in the competition.
