The quiz feature is one of my favorites on Edmodo. They are really easy to construct. The best part is that you can preset most answers so you and students get immediate feedback. Some ways I use this feature are as follows:
1. Reading Log- Students write a one paragraph describing what they read independently the night before. This is an easy bell ringer that students do daily. All I have to do is edit the title, I use the date and reload it.
2. Grammar In Class Drill/ Homework Drill- I always make these 10 questions, with preset answers. In doing this, I am able to see right away if a class is grasping concepts.
3. Any assessment that you can make multiple choice, fill in, matching, or true false. Short answer is available but you have to grade those.
Another important point to consider when choosing between an assignment and a quiz is that a quiz has a time limit. If a student leaves the quiz, he/she will have all answers marked in correct. You don’t want to use a quiz for an assignment that won’t be done in one sitting.
A new feature on the quiz is that you can randomize questions and you can print them out. I love that all quizzes and question are saved in a bank, but I wish they were easier to find. I usually search a ‘keyword.’ To find quizzes, questions, or assignments that you have already made choose the “load” option. Following are some screen shots of what the quiz looks like.
