Activity Description

Quizizz can be used as a prediction activity to find out what students already know about a topic or it can be used as a review to find out what was learned. You can create and play quizzes live or for homework. They can be accessed by the students using any device with a Web browser including a laptop, iPad, iPhone, iPod, Android, Chromebook, or desktop computer. An app is NOT necessary to participate in a Quizizz activity.

As of August 2022, there is only a limited free version. To use all the bells and whistles, you will need to use the Super Version which costs $96.00 annually. As long as you don't need many games, you can get away with using the free basic version.


  1. Get a Quizizz account and practice making and playing games
  2. Select Public (In top navigation bar) and peruse games already made.
  3. Find one on your topic area and select the Duplicate button (below the Play and Homework buttons).
  4. Open your duplicate game and select Edit.
  5. Tweak it to fit your class and select Finish.


  1. is best used as a homework activity. Select homework and you will get detailed instructions to send your students to do the quiz at home.
  2. Assign a quiz on Friday and do a whole class check of results on Monday.
  3. Use the reports section to see how well students understand key concepts.
  4. Revisit any topics that revealed a lack of understanding from the Quizizz.

Teacher Tips

  • Never make a quiz from scratch. Always find a Public one and tweak it to save time.
