How I Use It
I use this as a formative assessment tool. We've used it in a number of content areas and with grades 7-12. The polling feature works too but it would be nice if you could adjust the quizzes and polls on the fly. This tool even makes SBAC practice a little more fun. We even used this tool when addressing CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.8.4-- nothing like a little game to engage students and get them invested in the analysis of text. Some close reading followed by a gamified quiz is both fun and effective.
My Take
This a great tool for formative assessment. It is super-engaging and and there hasn't been class that hasn't loved it. Adding images and video is easy and there are thousands of Kahoot!s that are already made. Teachers can duplicate most of them so if you need a quick class pick up it works very well.
