To start the Quiz

There are two options for running a quiz. Play Live or Homework. Play Live you would use if the whole class was playing together to review for an upcoming test. Homework would be used if you are using the quizizz has a station or for the student to complete for homework.

Play the Game

Once students enter in the game code, they start to answer the questions at their own pace. There is a marker that runs across the top of the screen showing them how much time they have to answer each question. After each question is answered, the student gets immediate feedback and is shown where they are on the leader board.
