How I Use It
Pure assessment. Students log into your quiz, and the class competes against each other right on the screen. The faster they answer, the more points they get for each answer. It displays the top scorers in the quiz, so the competition can get ugly. Having questions with too much text would be hard for ELL or struggling readers, so having visual aids to answer the question could level the playing field.
My Take
There's thousands of quizzes already on the site, so don't create one. It already exists. My kids love to play this game, and they get to use their phones to submit their answers. I also ask the students to create a question for the class quiz, so students are creating their own classroom assessments.
