Quizalize is a newer game platform like Kahoot. Students play your quiz/answer questions on their laptops/tablets/phones by going to the Quizalize website and entering their names and a class code provided by you. Students are awarded points for correctly answering questions quickly and given feedback instantly on every quiz question that they answer. A total score is presented to students at the end of every quiz.
As a teacher, you are able to see the scores for each student in your class and on the results page, you can quickly identify the questions that gave students the most difficulty in terms of correct answers. You also have access to the time that was needed to answer each question.

LAST DAY for Open Enrollment for 2017 Kentucky Employees' Health Plan

Open enrollment for our 2017 KEHP benefits is October 10 – 24, 2016. This is a mandatory open enrollment period. Everyone must enroll in or waive health insurance coverage. If you do not make an election, you will be defaulted to the standard PPO plan for 2017 at the same level as your 2016 plan (single, couple, parent plus, family).

Tools to use:

  • Your KHRIS user ID and personalized benefits analyzer were sent in the mail. This information will help you determine what steps you need to take for open enrollment.

  • Benefit fairs are being held around the state. View times and locations here.
