Common Sense Rating 3
Pros
Teachers will love how easy it is to create and grade multiple versions of the same test.
Cons
It's pretty basic; you definitely don't have as many options as other educational platforms like Blackboard or Moodle.
Bottom Line
It's free, easy to use for both teachers and students, and, although basic, a pretty solid way to gather classroom data.

Engagement Is the product stimulating, entertaining, and engrossing? Will kids want to return? 3

Design is about as simple as can be, but that guarantees no distractions. Kids should have fun playing for speed and beating their scores; other than that, quiz-taking is pretty straightforward.

Pedagogy Is learning content seamlessly baked-in, and do kids build conceptual understanding? Is the product adaptable and empowering? Will skills transfer? 4

The depth of knowledge assessed depends on the type of questions that are selected for each test; there's lots of memorization but also the option to do some complex thinking with, for example, higher-math quizzes.

Support Does the product take into account learners of varying abilities, skill levels, and learning styles? Does it address both struggling and advanced students? 4

It's available in eight languages, and quizzes can be modified for kids at different levels.

How Can Teachers Use It?

ThatQuiz can be an incredibly 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 potential to save you 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.

ThatQuiz 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.

What's It Like?

ThatQuiz 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-hand 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 customizable options. Each assessment is graded by the site, and kids get immediate feedback. Kids can either access their tests by having a test code, a link to their class home page, or an email notification.

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 like sodium on the periodic table.

Is It Good For Learning?

Creating tests is easy and quick with ThatQuiz. 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 vocab 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.
