Kahoot:

What is this?

Kahoot is a trivia/quiz-style game that is customizable to your curriculum. The teacher creates an account and the quizzes; the students sign into the game with a code and play along. There must be a way to project the questions on a screen (such as your smartboard) so that all the students can see the questions, and a device for every student/team to be able to answer. Score is determined by how quickly the student answers with the correct answer. After each question it shows the answer and a leaderboard appears.

Students are able to demonstrate what they know in a fast-paced game scenario.

Quizizz:

What is this?

Similar to Kahoot, this is a trivia/quiz-style game that is customizable to your curriculum. Unlike Kahoot, the students can view the quiz questions and responses on their screen. The teacher can also modify other options, such as if there will be a leaderboard available, and even allow the students to be able to access the quiz for up to two weeks after initially playing to study from. It also gives the option of seeing a full answer key at the end of the quiz so the students can have a full view of their results.
