Quizizz is a game-based formative assessment website that lets you assess your students in a fun and engaging way. Quizizz is self-paced which allows the students to finish as quickly or slowly as they need to. Quizizz also offers a homework option which allows students to complete the assessment game on their own time using an access code provided by the teacher.
I've seen a number of teachers use Quizizz in their classroom and I know exactly why, it's just plain fun. When students log in to Quizizz they get a monster avatar (which they love seeing what they get), and when students answer questions they get funny memes that tell them if they are right or wrong. The best thing about Quizizz is that it's self-paced. Students get the opportunity to complete Quizizz as quickly or slowly (up to a time limit) as they want. This also helps reduce cheating since students are typically not on the same question at the same time. In the end, Quizizz gives you some good data to look at and see where students are doing well and where they are struggling. - ChrisTuckerEdu
"Quizizz is an engaging formative assessment tool that would be great to use as a prior knowledge check, mid-lesson status report, or exit ticket. Students enjoy the game-based atmosphere, friendly competition, and memes. Engagement in class is quite high." -excerpt from the Graphite review from Kate C.
"It uses a gaming interface so drill and kill practice of material is made interesting and engaging. I really liked how easy it is to create a quiz and how you can copy previously submitted quizzes and make your own changes. The students love the memes after they answer the question right or wrong. Some students enjoyed the competition and others did not." - excerpt from Graphite review from Valerie H.
