Motivate and engage your students with an awesome live quiz.
Live quizzes allow teachers to create and host quizzes that students can play together in real-time.
This article looks at the benefits of using live quizzes as part of your teaching strategy.
FlexiQuiz live is a game-based feature where teachers share the questions in real-time, and students respond on their mobile, laptop, or tablet.
Students are instantly told if their answer is right or wrong and can track their performance against classmates on the live leaderboard.
FlexiQuiz live is designed to make it easy for you to ask students questions in a fun and engaging way.
You can create custom quizzes that reflect the topic you're teaching in class so that the questions are relevant and interesting for students.
Live quiz games can be shared throughout the learner's journey.
For instance, to start, you can share a live quiz to introduce a new subject to pre-assess the student's level of understanding.
Once you start teaching the subject, you can share a quiz as a pulse check during the lesson and a recap at the end to measure the class's understanding.
Real-time data allows you to see how many students get the questions right or wrong. For example, the image below shows that 4 people got the question wrong and one person chose the correct answer. This data is a great way to spark discussion and debate across the group.
In addition, you can compare results over time to track improvements.
Friendships at school contribute towards a positive sense of mental wellbeing and help children learn social skills.
Icebreaker quizzes are a fun way to encourage students to get to know each other in the classroom or remotely. You can use icebreaker quizzes at the start of term, the beginning of a class, or an exciting way to wrap up a lesson.
These are a few examples of the types of icebreakers that you can create:
Instead of printing multiple worksheets for assessments, students can easily play along with any web-based device such as a mobile.
You don't need to carry around the papers for marking and all results are securely saved online.
All online quiz data is saved on your analyze screen and can be downloaded in an excel file for further review.
The quiz data helps you to identify which questions students struggle with or find easy so that you can develop lesson plans around the areas that need focus.
With FlexiQuiz, there are no limits for when and where your students learn. Live quizzes are a great way to connect with students in the classroom, remotely, or as part of a hybrid learning model.
You can play a live quiz over video conferencing such as Zoom, Google Meet, or Microsoft Teams. Simply share the join code and people can access the game using their own device.
