Over 3,000 teachers have registered to use our quizzes in class, as revision exercises and for setting self-marking homework. Here we look at why and how quizzes might be useful to you.
We understand that there are an infinite variety of teaching styles and not every teacher embraces quizzes. Some teachers register with us but find that our online, multiple-choice format does not suit their purpose and they leave with no hard feelings on our part. Individuality is something to treasure and we respect it.
We don’t ask you to pay us anything unless and until you are satisfied that we can benefit you and your school. That’s why we offer a free trial month during which every person at your school (teachers, administrators and students) can all use the entire site without charge.
We can’t provide you with a “Revolutionary new way to teach” – we’ve heard that too many times before and we know that such a thing exists only in fairy tales. We can’t hope to understand the strengths and weaknesses of each of your students as well as you do and therefore we can’t tailor-make a teaching programme that is ideally suited to each of them. What we can do is add another weapon to your armoury to make teaching a little more pleasurable and a little more effective.
Here are ten good reasons for employing quizzes as an aid in teaching:
Our 3,000+ quizzes are written by enthusiastic teachers who understand the sticking points that students face in each curriculum. Each quiz addresses a specific subject within a curriculum and contains ten questions, each of which has four multiple choice answers. As soon as an answer is clicked the student gets instant feedback on whether they were right or wrong; they are also given an “explanatory comment” to help them remember.
Navigation around the site is quick and easy so that children don’t lose interest before they find what they want.
Go to our School Preview Page and click the links to see the quizzes available in the subjects you teach.
Here’s how it works:
1. You register with us
2. We send you a “Universal Login”
3. You give out the “Universal Login” and everyone you give it to has instant access to the entire site
That’s it! You can give the “Universal Login” to all the students at your school as well as your teacher colleagues. Everyone can then play the quizzes in class or at home and they can all play the quizzes on their desktops, laptops, tablets and phones.
We pride ourselves on making your life easier and better, not more complicated and worse.
We never ask for any personal information from the children – not even their email addresses or passwords. The Education Quizzes site contains no advertising and no forums. Every sentence on every one of our thousands of pages has been vetted to ensure there is no danger of offence. The children will never, never, never be asked to pay anything to use the site.
Here are a few tried-and-tested uses for the quizzes…
Ask you students to play selected quizzes at home to reinforce the work they are doing in class. Suggest that they play a few quizzes each week to refresh their memory of the subjects.
Choose the quizzes your students need to play to quickly recap. their learning in preparation for exams.
All the quizzes can be printed for individual use or they can be played as a whole-of-class activity.
You can select any of the quizzes to set as self-marking homework and you will have access to neat, online records of each individual’s progress. This provides invaluable insights into which students are struggling with a subject and which subjects are creating problems for the class as a whole.
When you are faced with teaching a subject you are unfamiliar with, our quizzes can be a godsend. The class can be kept absorbed in a subject that you know is relevant to their curriculum.
Visit our About Us Page to learn about the team who have worked tirelessly to produce and maintain the best educational quiz site that has ever existed and then guess how much we charge… The cost to a school is just £95.00 per year and it is a perfect example of “economy of scale in the age of computers” – a great many individuals and schools use us!
Remember that our schools service provides access to the entire site for every student and teacher at your school. Why not try us for a month completely free of charge and without obligation.
