Type of assessment
Formative assessment explores students’ learning development during the process; it is a form of feedback, reflection and quality assurance.
How to Use
You can create a kahoot (personalised game) in minutes, made from a series of multiple choice questions. Add videos, images and diagrams to your questions to amplify engagement by your students. Players answer on their own devices, while games are displayed on a shared screen to unite the lesson – creating a ‘campfire moment’ – encouraging players to look up.
When to Use
Use Kahoot at any time during a lesson to encourage student engagement:
- Create a kahoot to kick-off a lesson, introduce new concepts or preview content.
- Revise topics, reinforce knowledge, recap learning, pre-assess and practice before exams.
- Connect with classrooms in over 180 countries and play a kahoot together in realtime using screenshare.
- Create a kahoot to break the ice, re-energize a room, reward good behavior or just have a little fun.
