QuizBean Opens a Quiz Bank for Sharing Quizzes

QuizBean is a nice platform for creating simple image-based quizzes that your students can complete online. The service allows you to assign quizzes to students on a class-by-class or individual basis. Quiz results are automatically sent to your teacher dashboard when students have completed a quiz.

The latest update to QuizBean allows you to search for quizzes that other teachers have created and marked as public. You can also contribute your own quizzes to the quiz bank.

Applications for Education
The QuizBean quiz bank could be a place to share quizzes with local and global colleagues. Before writing your next short quiz, take a quick look in the quiz bank to see if there is one suitable for your chosen topic. Even if you don't find an exact match you may find ideas for your writing your own quizzes.

One of the things that I like about QuizBean is that students get immediate feedback on each question that they answer. Before moving to the next question students are told if they answered the previous question correctly or incorrectly.

Kahoot – Create Quizzes and Surveys Your Students Can Answer on Any Device

Kahoot is a new service for delivering online quizzes and surveys to your students. The premise of Kahoot is similar to that of Socrative and Infuse Learning. On Kahoot you create a quiz or survey that your students respond to through any device that has a web browser (iPad, Android device, Chromebook). Your Kahoot questions can include pictures and videos.

As the teacher you can control the pace of the Kahoot quiz or survey by imposing a time limit for each question. As students answer questions they are awarded points for correct answers and the timeliness of their answers. A scoreboard is displayed on the teacher's screen.

Applications for Education
Students do not need to have a Kahoot account in order to participate in your activities. To participate they simply have to visit Kahoot.it then enter the PIN code that you give to them to join the activity. Using Kahoot, like Socrative and Infuse Learning, could be a good and fun way to conduct review sessions in your classroom. Using Kahoot could also be a good way to gather informal feedback from your students.
