Not a teacher
I'm not actually a teacher, I'm a student. My Maths teacher, Mrs Witter used this once in class and we all loved it. After class i asked her for the name of the site and now I'm here. So I've used it a bit to create a few quizzes for a club i help run and it's been great so far.
I've found it easy and enjoyable to create the quizzes and it's helped a lot with boredom. Don't know what to do? I'll just go on my phone and create a few questions until something else comes up. It's a great use of my time and I'd recommend it to teachers and fellow students alike.
Well, as a formative assessment tool, or to help me understand what learning has taken place, whilst keeping the confidence and integrity of the student, it's fantastic! Quick and highly effective...
I highly recommend spending the time to create clear confirmatory questions and slip this exercise into your lesson plan as an inclusion and differentiation element.
If you wanted to stretch and challenge - have some questions banked - it works well for ad hoc interaction either as groups or for an individual, pulling your lessons up Bloom's taxonomy to 'analysis'.
I use this most lessons
I've tried other apps and websites; this is the only one I've used for successive years. I use it at the start of most lessons as a quick test of knowledge. Sometimes it is checking the students have done the 'prep' homework, sometimes to revise some of the key facts or terminology from the previous lesson. Much quicker to set up than, say Socrative, and the reports are more useful. Highly recommended.
