I’m Kyle Niemis, the Head of Community at Quizizz and a former teacher and tech coach for 16 years. In this post and video tour, I'll share some of my favorite features of the Quizizz School Plan.
While the free version of Quizizz helps engage and motivate students, the School Plan takes student learning to the next level by providing features to support deeper conceptual understanding and increased confidence.
Access to All Question Types
The School Plan gives you access to every single question type imaginable on Quizizz, including Hotspot and Labeling for visual interactions, Dropdown and Drag-and-Drop for higher-level thinking, and Video and Audio Questions and Responses. By using a variety of question types, you can create assessments that challenge students to think critically and apply their knowledge in different ways, across every level of Bloom’s Taxonomy. We currently have 12+ question types that align to many of your state tests, and you can expect even more as we continue to listen to teachers' needs and feedback.
1.8M+ Premium Quizzes and Lessons
In addition to creating your own quizzes with higher-order thinking questions, the School Plan gives you access to millions of premium quizzes and lessons that were previously locked. You can import and add any questions with premium features, making it easy to find the right content to engage and challenge your students. You can import questions and add them to your own quizzes, or assign the quizzes directly to your students.
As a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) fan, I love that the School Plan allows you to insert audio of yourself reading questions aloud. This feature is particularly helpful for younger students or those who are still mastering the English language. By hearing prompts read aloud, students can better understand what is being asked of them and can focus on demonstrating their knowledge rather than struggling to understand the question.
Extended and No Deadlines
The School Plan also offers Extended/No Deadlines, which means that quizzes and lessons can be available to students at any time. This is particularly helpful for review and practice, as students can access the quizzes whenever they need to. This feature is also great for students who need more time to complete assignments, as it takes away the pressure of a strict deadline.
Adaptive Question Bank
One of my favorite features of the School Plan is the Adaptive Question Bank. This feature gives students different questions depending on their needs, so that each student can focus on previously incorrect and unseen questions for more meaningful learning with every attempt. By tailoring the questions to each student, you can promote mastery and help students feel more confident in their abilities.
Standards-Aligned Reports and Analytics
The School Plan also includes detailed reports and analytics that give you a better understanding of your students' knowledge and abilities. You can see how students performed on each question, which questions were the most challenging, and which standards they struggled with. By using this information to guide your instruction, you can help your students improve and achieve mastery.
Time-Saving LMS Integration to Sync Grades
Finally, the School Plan saves teachers time by integrating with all the main Learning Management Systems (LMS), including Google Classroom, Schoology, and Canvas. This means that grades are synced directly into your grade book, eliminating the need for manual data entry. This integration saves teachers hours of work each week copying/pasting grades into your gradebook so you can spend more time doing what you do best: teaching.
And So Much More
One of the coolest things about Quizizz is that we’re constantly learning and growing, just like our students and teachers. Check out the latest and greatest exclusive additions to our School plan:
- Focus Mode - notifications for students and teachers when students switch to or open new tabs, designed to prevent cheating during test mode.
- Unlimited Library Storage - create and edit quizzes and lessons beyond our free limit of 20 activities.
- Partner-level security and support - role-based access and additional data security support for your school or district.
Wrapping It Up
While the free version of Quizizz is a great tool for engaging and motivating students, the School Plan takes it to the next level by providing ALL teachers and administrators in your building with unlimited access to a wider range of tools for learners.
By using all the features of the School Plan, you can challenge your students to think critically and apply their knowledge in new ways, while also tailoring the questions to each student's level of understanding. Our statistics show that the School Plan helps students build confidence and improve by two letter grades, on average!
