How Can I Teach with This Tool?
Quizplus is a database of study tools -- including ready-made quizzes, tests, flash cards, and even textbooks with review exercises pulled from 30 academic fields -- designed to save students test prep time. Fields include anthropology, philosophy, statistics, business, nursing, and more. Choose a subtopic and course to use the pre-prepared study materials, or create your own.
Ideal for AP students to help them stay on track, the platform is especially suited for independent learning. Options are limited in the free version, so pursuing the basic or premium subscription might be preferred.
With a paid subscription, more customization is possible for teachers seeking to meet all of their students' needs and ensure the learning experience is accessible. Quizplus, then, could be used as a solid sub day plan, with students assigned to specific quizzes, tests, or flash cards. Knowing that many students prefer learning in groups, teachers could also assign small groups to review material together using the flash cards and then, after the opportunity to support each other, move on to taking the related test on their own. And, Quizplus could support formative and summative assessment in a hybrid classroom, saving in-person time to explore topics in more depth, leveraging cooperative learning and class discussion. Teachers with more reluctant students and those needing more accommodations will want to model how to navigate the site and perhaps tailor the study tools before introducing the platform.
