If users select the incorrect answer, the Tennis Quiz App highlights the correct answer and then progresses to the next question. If users answer a question correctly, they are awarded points based on how quickly they selected the correct answer. When the quiz ends, users are shown their score and where they ranked on the “High Scores” list. In the free version, users only have access to the “Demo” quiz that asks a limited number of questions, and users will need to make an in-app purchase ($0.99) to access additional questions. If users would like to read questions in languages other than English, they would have to make an in-app purchase ($0.99).

Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can have students review their knowledge of tennis by completing the demo quiz.
  2. After becoming familiar with the format of these questions, teachers can have students create paper-and-pencil quizzes similar to the ones found in this app about other sports. To do so, students would have to research the other sports and compose questions about them that mirror the questions found in this app. Once they have created their quizzes, a student could swap quizzes with a partner and answer each other’s questions.
  3. Teachers could have students research facts about tennis and create multiple-choice questions based on those facts. Students could then email their questions to their teacher. The teacher would then convert the questions into a quiz and post it on either the Edmodo or Schoology app and website. Finally, teachers could instruct students to complete the quiz.
