Edmodo Quiz Tips

Some of you may have already heard by now, but Edmodo launched their quiz feature recently. I started exploring it this past weekend and I'm really excited about what it has to offer teachers.

Teachers now have the ability to create quizzes and assign them to a single student, a group, or a combination of both. Teachers have the choice of four question formats that include, multiple choice, fill in the blank, true/false, and short answer. Also, there is a timing feature that allows teachers to set a time limit. What I really like about the quiz feature is teachers can attach a file or supporting link to a question. As a result, students will be more engaged and have to use higher order thinking skills when asked to evaluate a video, article, image, etc.

Below are a list of quiz tips and FAQs about Edmodo's quiz feature. For more information, you can also check out the Edmodo blog.

Coincidentally, I used the quiz function for the first time today for a mid-term review.

The most impressive thing to me is that Edmodo will create a pie chart for each question, showing you what percentage of your students got that question right (or wrong). In that sense, it's much easier to get information on student understanding than using Elements.
