How I Use It
Kahoot! is an easy assessment tool when you are looking specific answers. I used in the classroom to evaluate grammar and punctuation of sentences. Kahoot! gave me a formative assessment on how my class was doing on the concepts I was teaching. The tool is free and students can access it through a code.
My Take
Kahoot! works well for formative assessments when you want to collect data on how the class is doing on specific answers. The quiz takes time to set up and you will need questions and answers planned out to set up the game. The downside to Kahoot! is the lack of open-ended ideas. As a reading teacher, I am looking for text evidence to support ideas. This is a quick assessment tool which students will love (along with the sounds effects) but is limited in its use.
