If your school has been closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, you and your peers are eligible to participate in the Quizalize Distance Learning Support program. To apply, fill out the form and we will be in touch to get you set up.
Quizalize is the perfect platform for assessing students outside of the physical classroom. You can create a digital classroom environment that mimics a real one through real-time assessments and resource assignments. Here is a list of 5 ways Quizalize can help you with your lesson planning for distance learning:
Assign quizzes and resources for a specific time frame
Set up differentiated follow up activities and track improvements data
Screen share live game results
Analyze and share student quiz data
Use Mastery Mode for rote learning
Bonus resource to share with students to help them access quizzes from home:
1. Assign quizzes and resources for a specific time frame
When you assign a quiz or a resource like a YouTube video, .pdf worksheet, or a web link, you can set the specific time frame in which students can access the assignment.
By doing so you can run a live session with all your students at once, or you can allow them to complete tasks on their own time by a specific deadline.
2. Set up differentiated follow up activities and track improvements data
Even though you can't physically be with your students at all times, that does not mean you can't personalize their learning. Activities with follow-up activities can help target weaknesses as well as challenge students that are strong, all through the automatic follow up feature.
Check out these two short tutorials on using our built-in differentiation feature and analyzing improvements data from multiple attempts:

3. Screen share live game results
Quizalize prides itself on data aggregation and the ability to virtually assign follow up activities. We also think it's important that our assessments are gamified to increase student engagement, and students don't need to be in a physical classroom to enjoy some healthy competition. If you've never set up a live game before, click here.
Typically teachers project their computer screen with the live game results onto the front of a classroom, but if you can live stream a lesson to your students while they are at home, then you can share your screen live directly to their devices.
4. Analyze and share student quiz data
Formative assessments fulfill a very important need in any classroom, physical or virtual. The exercise is about collecting information, and one screen in particular is tailor made to present to the class:
What they need help with
This screen shows which questions students struggled on, and which ones they did not. Many teachers go through each question and clarify misconceptions one at a time. This can either be done as a live screen share (much like in #3) or they can create a short video review and assign it (through Quizalize of course!) to be viewed on the student's own time.
5. Use Mastery Mode for rote learning
Mastery mode is the perfect tool for having students demonstrate that they've memorized terms and simple concepts, by forcing them to retake a quiz until they have answers all questions correctly.
This option is perfect for helping students memorize vocabulary, key terms, and simple concepts. In order to tackle more complex problems, students must first be able to make simple associations. Mastery Mode provides that opportunity.
