Kahoot is a fun online learning game that works on any device with an internet connection.

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.
