Game Creators: How Can I Replace a Low Quiz Grade?

  1. Review all of your quizzes and the grades for those quizzes.
  2. Decide which grade you would like to replace.
  3. Fill out the "Replace this Quiz Form".
  4. Go to the "Top 2" Link and see which concepts you must cover in your game, plus other concepts from the unit (the top 2 or 3 frequently missed concepts by the class was created by Ms. Felton at the bottom of this newsletter).
  5. Create a review game for the quiz that you want to replace.
  6. Email Ms. Felton to let her know you have created the game & want to host it or post your 30 second commercial for it.
  7. After Ms. Felton reviews the game, YOU WILL BE SCHEDULED TO HOST OR POST.
  8. All hosted games must be scheduled for Tuesday or Thursday during the available dates for that quiz.
  9. Finally you will host your review game at chat or post the 30 second commercial for it (depending on the type of game you create).

Game Creators: Rules for Types of Games

You may create a game that requires a host or an online game that does not. It may be an original game or a variation of an existing game. Your game can be for individuals or for teams. It must be more than just a recall/vocabulary review. It must include at least 3 review topics from the unit. See the "Top 2" from your unit to get the topics.

  • Minimum of 10 questions for the game
  • Be sure to check the rubric for your game before beginning
  • Hosted games must be scheduled for Tuesdays or Thursdays during the available dates for that quiz
  • No 1 creator may use the same game more than once
  • No game creator may use the same game as someone else that has already hosted
  • Anyone can create a game and use the same quiz as someone else
