Instant assessment with Kahoot

I was very fortunate to be invited to take place in a recent workshop run by Mark Anderson (@ICTevangelist). One of the best things Mark showed me was an online assessment tool – Kahoot. The beauty of Kahoot is that it enables you to very quickly and easily create multiple choice quizzes which you can use as either a quick assessment tool to check progress during or at the end of a lesson, or for more structured assessments at the end of a topic. It’s really easy to sign up to, and you don’t need any additional apps or logins for the children on their devices.

With the latter in mind, I set up a couple of internet safety based Kahoots for KS2. The year 3/4 quiz is based on ‘The Adventures of Kara, Winston and the Smart Crew’, an excellent series of short videos which teachers children the SMART rules of internet safety. You can try the quiz yourself by clicking on the link below.

The year 5/6 quiz includes some of the questions from the year 3/4 quiz, but without the videos to help answer them. There are additional questions prompted by this CEOP video. You can try the quiz by clicking on the link below.

At the end of each quiz you can download a spreadsheet with the results, giving you an instant view on your class, broken down by student and by question, so you can quickly identify any children making below expected progress or any areas of the topic which you need to re-enforce. You can see and example below minus the children’s names.

I can’t recommend it highly enough, even if you’re not a technically confident teacher.
