Revision Quiz Maker: An App for Assessment
Summary : It’s quiz time! Are you ready?
Revision Quiz Maker allows users to create quizzes on their iPads. To make a quiz, users must tap the “New Quiz” option listed on the home screen. Next, they are to select the category for their quiz (e.g., Biology, Chemistry, Film, General Knowledge, and more) and a title. At this point, users can add different types of questions (e.g., multiple choice, fill in the blank, ordering, and matching) by selecting the question type and then typing in the information. When ready to use the quiz, users must tap the “Play” button on the bottom of the screen, select or add the names of individuals who will take the quiz, tap the “Play” button again, and then begin the quiz. Revision Quiz Maker will show the names of the individuals who are to answer each question, and their turns alternate. After each question, individuals are told if they answered the question correctly and shown the points they earned. After they complete a quiz, high scores are recorded and users can return to the main menu by tapping the “Back” and “Check” button. On the main menu, users can take another quiz or create a new quiz.
Please note: Users can make an in-app purchase that allows a quiz to be seen on multiple devices and removes the ads.
- After teaching a lesson or unit, teachers can preload review quizzes with 5–10 questions into this app. To use the quizzes, teachers can put their students in groups of three to five, and have each group share an iPad with a preloaded quiz. Students can then answer questions in the quiz and see who earns the highest score. After the quiz is complete, students can take a screen shot of their final scores and send it to their teacher for accountability. Once all groups of students have finished a quiz, they can swap iPads and take another review quiz, if different quizzes are loaded on the different iPads.
- After a lesson or unit, teachers can have students write review questions using the UX Documents, Office Offline, or Hanx Writer apps. Students can then send teachers their review questions, and teachers can enter them into this app as a review. Next, teachers can have students take the review quizzes using an activity as described in the previous classroom application.
- Before beginning a new unit, teachers can load questions into a quiz that assesses students’ background knowledge about a topic. Teachers can then use class time for students to complete the quiz. Finally, teachers can begin a class conversation based on the quiz by asking: (1) Which topics did you already know? (2) Which topics interested you? (3) What do you think we are going to learn during this new unit?
