Technology: Quizizz is a free web-based program that can be used for interactive review of course content or assessment of learning. It incorporates elements of gamification including avatars, memes, and leader boards. It can be used live in class or set-up as an out of class homework assignment. Each participant works through questions at their own pace on a computer or hand held device. The Quizizz developer can create custom memes to reinforce course content or use stock ones that add humor and entertainment to the material review. Questions can be manually entered or imported from and Excel template.
Evidence: Anecdotally, some students prefer the self-pacing of Quizizz to some other quiz review programs, such as Kahoot that require everyone to move thru the questions at the same pace. The use of memes to provide feedback for correct incorrect questions serves as immediate positive reinforcement and injects humor into the classroom. Studies and experts suggest that humor and gamification helps improve learning outcomes while engaging students and relieving stress (Ziv 2014, Lei et al. 2010, Terrell 2014, Renaud and Wagoner 2011).
Broader Impacts: These type of review “games” have the ability to be implemented across disciplines and participant results can be useful to the instructor to evaluate both teaching success and the quality of the questions presented.
