Kahoot - A Really Fun Student Response Application


This week I tried out a new site called Kahoot and it was a HUGE success with my students and with the teachers in Hartland, WI where I presented this past weekend.

Kahoot allows you to create a quiz (survey or discussion).  The teacher needs to sign up for a free account to create a quiz.  The students do not need an account to take the quiz.  

The teacher projects the quiz in the front of the room and the students answer the multiple choice questions on any device.


Students only need to get the pin to enter into the quiz.  
Questions appear very visual and the choices are colored boxes with shapes.  After each question, the quiz also projects the students with the top 5 scores. 

While taking the quiz, music plays in the background and the questions are timed, which the teacher sets the time when setting up the quiz. 

When the quiz is finished, teachers can download the results.  

One of my favorite features is the ability to preview a quiz before launching it.

Check out this video:




To sign up for an account go to getkahoot.com
Students need to go to kahoot.it

I highly recommend giving Kahoot a try!

We all played with Kahoot this morning with Deb as our guide. What fun! One teacher even created a quiz to review test-taking strategies for the 5th graders who are in the middle of our state-wide achievement testing. Great find Deb!

Do I have to download an app on the iPods?

Do I have to download an app on our iPods for the students?

Hi Nikki,
No, there isn't an app. The students simply go to kahoot.it and enter the code that you give them. You will get a code after you create and start a quiz on the website www.getkahoot.com

I love Kahoot but my students are often kicked out during the process. Is there anything I can do to prevent this?

Deb Norton said...

Hi Bynger,
If our students get kicked out we have them just go back in and join over again. We did find that using the Chrome web browser worked better than Firefox.
