Just in time for back-to-school: New distance learning resources are available on Wide Open School.
That Quiz can be a useful tool for learning because it immediately lets kids see their score, what they got wrong, and the correct answer. It also makes it easy for teachers to give kids another chance and provide a new version of an assessment. All they have to do is press Regenerate, and an entirely new test appears that addresses the exact same concepts. Features like that have the potential to save a ton of time! And if you're using standards-based grading or working in competency-based classrooms, you'll be extra grateful for this automated test generation.
That Quiz can be very helpful for differentiation, remediation, and providing alternative forms of an assessment. Its many options make it a versatile tool; you can import tests created by other teachers or make your own. Shorter quizzes could be merged later to produce a larger final exam.Continue reading Show less
That Quiz is a website featuring multiple-choice, matching, and short-answer tests on a variety of core subjects. Most of its content is math-oriented, with quizzes on arithmetic to calculus, but it also includes tests on science, geography, and four languages. Click on a quiz like "Shapes," and you're presented with the image of a rectangle and four multiple-choice options. Guess correctly, and your right answer will be recorded in the upper right corner. You can also choose which shapes you'd like to be quizzed on, whether you want the quiz to be timed, and a handful of other options. Each assessment is graded by the site, and kids get immediate feedback. Kids can access their tests by having a test code, a link to their class home page, or an email notification. A teacher account gives teachers the ability to design and assign tests. It also lets teachers view grade reports for each student on each quiz.
Some standout quizzes:
- African Geography Test: Identify all the countries in Africa.
- Graphs Test: Answer questions about pictograms, bar graphs, box plots, and any other graph you choose.
- Elements Test: Pick the location of elements such as sodium on the periodic table.
Creating tests is easy and quick with That Quiz. It's not super slick, but the levels of customization make up for the slightly boring interface. Kids can learn about almost anything; there are tons of math quizzes and a reasonable amount of content in other areas. Math questions range from basic arithmetic to calculus, and vocabulary quizzes are available for people learning English, French, Spanish, or German. Kids will also find science practice on cells, anatomy, elements, and conversions.
Note: Testing security is always a concern with online tests, and certain precautions should be taken to preserve the integrity of the quizzes you create. Unless it's a practice test, don't assign it until your actual class period. Students should also protect their passwords to prevent others from taking tests using their name.
Key Standards Supported
Expressions And Equations
Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients.
Use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, about the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles. For example, arrange three copies of the same triangle so that the sum of the three angles appears to form a line, and give an argument in terms of transversals why this is so.
The Complex Number System
Solve quadratic equations with real coefficients that have complex solutions.
The Number System
Interpret and compute quotients of fractions, and solve word problems involving division of fractions by fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, create a story context for (2/3) ÷ (3/4) and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient; use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (2/3) ÷ (3/4) = 8/9 because 3/4 of 8/9 is 2/3. (In general, (a/b) ÷ (c/d) = ad/bc.) How much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 3/4-cup servings are in 2/3 of a cup of yogurt? How wide is a rectangular strip of land with length 3/4 mi and area 1/2 square mi?
Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.
