What better way to get students excited about learning than to introduce a fun interactive game or quiz to the classroom? Create some friendly rivalry between students and create a sense of community by using an interactive quiz. Switch up standard teaching techniques and wake up students with some interactive games.

Introducing quizzes is a great way to make the classroom more fun. So, why introduce fun quizzes to the classroom?

  • Check student understanding - a fun way to get some insights on what subjects need to be revisited.
  • Improve knowledge retention - asking questions about a subject just covered can help reinforce what they have learnt in a more enjoyable way.
  • Reward activity - reward students for their hard work.
  • Icebreaker - relax the class, introduce new students or teachers and welcome everyone.
  • Engage students - get student’s focused right away and ready to learn.
  • Make mundane topics more fun - the students will soon forget they are learning with an enjoyable quiz

How to make a fun and informative quiz for students?

  1. Keep it short and simple, don’t complicate the quiz more than needed
  2. Randomize the positions of the correct answers
  3. Don’t make the questions to easy and don’t make the answers too tricky
  4. Use interactive tools, like Mentimeter to easily create a quiz in a few minutes
  5. Give students enough time to answer
  6. Mix up the questions and the content
  7. Explain the correct answers to the students for those who may have got it wrong
  8. Ask your students for feedback so you can improve for next time!
