DLC Quick Tip - Digital Formative Assessments


If you are looking for a quick way to assess students understanding of a concept in reading, math, music, or art, Quizizz is a tool that can help you gather quick data from the students to make decisions about what you need to teach, re-teach, and which students are ready for an extension to dive deeper. You can create your own assessments or use one of the many that is in the Quizizz library.


With the new use of Tier Time in the building, I think that many of you would enjoy this tool. It will give you incredible amounts of data at the question and student level.


If you want to learn more about Quizizz, I am happy to help you learn the tool, use it with students, and analyze the data.


The student app for Quizizz is already in Self-Service ready for students to download.
