Instructional Ideas

  1. Between class activities or while waiting for classmates to finish an assignment, teachers can have students take quizzes in MySAT. As an incentive, teachers can offer students small amounts of extra credit when perfect scores are achieved on a quiz.
  2. Teachers can create a classroom competition by challenging students to complete all 50 quizzes in MySAT with a perfect score before the end of a semester, grading period, or course. Teachers could then reward extra credit to students as an incentive.
  3. Teachers can use MySAT to assign students a weekly quiz to be completed as a vocabulary-learning method. To begin, students can take a quiz on Monday to get a preliminary score. Then, for the words they missed on Monday, teachers can have students complete different vocabulary activities with those words, such as creating Frayer boxes, using the words in writing and conversation, and drawing pictures that represent the words’ meaning. At the end of the week, students could then retake the quiz for final grading.
  4. Teachers can create a class competition in which all students take the same quiz in MySAT. The winning student is determined by the highest percentage of questions answered correctly. If a tie ensues, teachers can use the least amount of time required to complete the quiz to determine the final winner of the competition.
