Kahoot is a website that allows you to create and deliver quizzes to any type of device. As a teacher, you can insert images into the questions as well as videos. You also control the pace of the quiz and set time limits per questions. Students earn points based on accuracy and the speed at which they respond. Results can be downloaded as an Excel spreadsheet. Kahoot is usually a "crowd pleaser." Click here for a short video.


  • Once students get the gist of Kahoot, put the responsibility of creating the questions and answer choices on them. For secondary students, they could email you the information that would allow you to copy and paste to create the quiz.
  • Look in the "public" section of Kahoot to find 1.3+MILLION of quizzes already made. Just search for your topic of review. You can duplicate the quiz and then edit to customize the content.
