Amplifying Your EOY Test Prep
Tips from @perkyPLEF
trying to make it more exciting?
Great for most core content areas, JogNog has tons of pre-created, standards-aligned quizzes. With the addition of coins and the ability to collect points and towers, students feel more engaged in the "game" to beat out top scores! Teachers can create classes to assign specific quizzes, create their own questions, and monitor students' progress. Idea for your class: Create a JogNog station in your room! Early finishers can go work on some JogNog for extension practice!
MathMap is great for, well, math! Covering content from grades 4 to 8, students can work their way through different tutorial lessons and then try their hand at a 5-6 question quiz. The honeycomb map breaks it into sections (Number Systems and Fractions, for example) to help students group concepts or focus on specific areas for improvement. Idea for your class: Create some MathMap assignments for students to complete, assign it out in Amplify Playlist, and have students submit screenshots of their mastery/score.
Kahoot! is an oldy, but goody. Don't let it's fun and interactive interface fool you: teachers can use Kahoot! to do some relaxing review in class and reinforce material. Idea for your class: Use Kahoot! as a springboard for discussion about different questions! Load practice questions into a Kahoot game, and play like normal! However, pause between each question to discuss the question and the answers.
