Quizzes and Polls with Kahoot
Kahoot! is a game-based learning platform, used as educational technology in schools and other educational institutions. Its learning games, “Kahoots“, are multiple-choice quizzes that allow user generation and can be accessed via a web browser, phone, or the app itself.
Kahoot is enjoyable for everyone such as: teachers, students, parents, kids ect. Kahoot! is mostly used in schools for an interesting way the students can learn, not just stay above the book all the day.
The quiz game allows for up to four different answers and it allows for different solutions to correct answers; all four can be right, one of two, three or four may be right, etc. (it requires at least one correct answer). Each question has a time limit with regards to answering. This can be set from 20 seconds to 120 seconds.
The game can be played as a pre-generated quiz or in a classroom with the teacher as a “game master”. The students can reply the game by logging on from a pc, iPad or mobile phone. By entering a game pin generated by the quiz game, the “game master” can start the quiz and decide on when to display the next question.
A scoreboard is optional, but many students like to see how well they are doing. The students are given an opportunity to rate the game and learning outcome after playing.
Kahoot! can be used to review students’ knowledge, for formative assessment, or as a break from traditional classroom activities. Kahoot! also includes trivia quizzes.
