One of my colleagues asked me the difference between Quizziz and Kahoot!. Being a novice in using both websites, I just give her my honest opinions. But again, both has its own unique features that work for different purposes. So, its usefulness is based on our needs actually. It is a tool. Like pen and pencil. Both are meant for writing (same purpose) but if you want something that difficult to be erased, pen might be a better option as compared to pencil. For pencil, all you need is a bit of your saliva to erase what you want to erase (get the picture? 😀 )
Quizziz has an extensive test bank from various teachers and educators around the world. When I started using it in late 2016, there was word limitation (meaning, you cannot give lengthy question/answer), but things have changed. But for Kahoot!, there is still word limitation. Meaning, if you want to give a case or scenario question, Quizziz offers better choice. But to get immediate response or if you want to give short questions, Kahoot! is a better option.
I showed her my Quizziz and Kahoot! to give her a better “visualisation”. Well, I hope she gets the idea. I encourage her to join Quizziz so that we can share our materials. Of course, I show her as well some of my exclusive stuff which I use for my class that I don’t make it public. Why? Sometimes it is based on specific journal articles or materials that we use for class discussion. So, whatever that I make public in my Quizziz is generic, not specific topics. Like grammar, for example.
I also showed her how to link it to her E-Content.
