Classroom Quiz Master Lite: An App for Quizzes
Summary : An Interactive Quiz App
Classroom Quiz Master Lite allows users to create review questions. From its home screen, users must tap the “Gear” button and then the “+” button to create and title a new quiz. Next, users must tap the “+” button to add new questions. In this app, users can only input questions, not answers. Once all questions have been entered, users tap the “Exit” button in the top right of the screen to begin the quiz. If multiple quizzes have been entered into this app, users must tap the “Exit” button until the quiz they want to use is selected. To begin a quiz, users must split their contestants (or students) into two groups (Team A and Team B) and tap the “?” button on the home screen. A quiz question will then appear on the screen in this app. A contestant must answer for his or her group. If the answer is correct, users can tap the “check” button on the podium to award points. If the answer is incorrect, users must tap the “X” button on the podium. After the question has been answered or it is time to move onto the next question, users must tap the “?” button again. After all the questions have been answered, Classroom Quiz Master Lite will announce the winner.
- Teachers can write 10 review questions for a topic or unit and load them into this app. Teachers can then divide their class into two teams and connect their iPad to a projector. Each team can select a spokesperson. Next, teachers can begin the quiz by tapping the “?” to project a question. The spokespersons can then conference with their teams to see if they know the correct answer. If they do, they can raise a hand and the first spokesperson to raise his or her hand has the first opportunity to answer the question. If the answer is correct, that team earns points. If not, the other team has an opportunity to answer it.
- To involve students more directly with the quiz, teachers can have students write the quiz questions using the UX Documents, Office Offline, or Hanx Writer apps. Once written, students can email their teacher their questions, and the teacher can enter their students’ questions into a quiz. Then, when teachers create an activity such as the idea presented in the first classroom application, the questions may be more relevant to students.
- As a review activity, teachers can break their students into groups of three. Next, each group can write 10 quiz questions about a lesson or topic that was recently taught, and load the questions into this app. Once complete, the group can swap iPads with another group. Once swapped, each group can take the other group’s quiz. To do so, one student in the group can be the “Host” and the two other students can face off against each other, as Team A and Team B. After the roles are established, the Host can begin proctoring the quiz. After the quiz is complete, the group can either give feedback to the group that created the quiz or they can swap iPads with another group.
