Kahoot! Latest updated to this easy to use formative assessment tool to create interactive quizzes

Kahoot - formative assessment, game-based interactive quiz tool.

Use a free game-based formative assessment platform to stimulate thinking, reflection, and provide evidence of student learning.  Kahoot has been out for a number of years, but as its popularity increases, so does its functionality.  Currently, there is a free version, a plus version ($1 a month, annual billing) and a pro version ($3 a month, annual billing) - no downloads of any software are required, and students can participate with computer or mobile device (with the proper app download).  There is plenty of power in the free version, and this tutorial shows some of the new features added, so take a look! will get you to the site, students can log in with the app (mobile device app for iOS or Android) or go to to use a computer.  A great tool to use in a face-to-face environment, using the PLAY button and run it live, but if you are online you can click the CHALLENGE button and assign a time frame for students to complete it.

Instructional Strategy: Lecture
Blooms Levels= 1-2 without activity (knowledge, comprehension)
  3-4 with activity (application, analysis)
  • Stimulate reflection
  • Challenge the imagination
  • Develop curiosity and sense of inquiry
  • Push content
  • Introduce topic/content, followed by a discussion to support the concepts covered in the lecture
  • Lecture method should include the types of experiences students will be afforded and the kinds of learning outcomes expected
  • Teacher-centered (unless activity is involved)
  • Incorporating an activity can help to enforce learning as the attention span of students may be limited
  • Lecture should not repeat the textbook but should provide additional information and examples
  • Provides the instructor the opportunity to apply the concepts from the book and course
