Kahoot is a great way to help my students review a lesson or review for a test or quiz!

Pros: I like that I can make multiple choice questions, polls or discussions and that all of my students are using technology (any type of device) to answer questions. I also like that Kahoot is a very engaging way for students to be engaged in class!

Cons: I would like to be able to have short answer questions on quizzes, instead of only multiple choice, but overall, I am very pleased with the website.

Overall: Great way to do reviews over lesson or test/quiz review as a whole class with my students.

Pros: Kahoot is definitely a fun way to engage your kids in questions that relate to your content. It's easy and quick to use. There's a database with tons of question sets created by other teachers, and it's simple to access these sets and use that game in your class. If you can't find what you're looking for, you can also create your own which takes very little time. It's easy for students to get into the game - no hoops to jump through. It's also a reliable webpage and interface. I've never had students stalled from accessing their website, so that's definitely helpful. Kahoot also provides you with formative data. Obviously, you wouldn't use the scores as a test grade, but it gives you an idea about student strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in knowledge. You can then use this information moving forward. The environment that's created in your class is just great, but you use it wisely. You can't play Kahoot right before kids are expected to walk quietly in the hallway or read quietly and independently. :)

Cons: Due to the game-like environment it creates, you can't extensively rely on the data gathered from the assessment. Nor can you track individual growth over periods of time. But there are other tools designed for that, so just use Kahoot appropriately.

Very Good

Pros: We have used it in our youth ministry and it made for a great game night that really got the kids involved.

Cons: Not many downsides. Can add a lot of players and can make learning fn for students in and out of the classroom.

Kahoot turns a regular classroom lesson into a fun, interactive game my students love!

Pros: My ability to create, dictate, and edit the quizzes I present to my student in the classroom. It helps keep us all engaged.

Cons: I have yet to find a con that I don't enjoy about using Kahoot in my class. My students sometimes backspace during a "quiz" and then are kicked out of the game entirely.

This is a great technological website/app to use in the classroom, individually, or in a group.

Pros: A person can easily assign homework, quiz a classroom or group of people, or use for a review. Students tend to be very engaged and the method of delivery helps them remember the information.

Overall: The administrators of the software are very relevant and are always coming up with ways to keep the experience exciting.

I've used this myself as an instructor and as a student. Personally, I find it enjoyable.

Pros: I enjoy the immediate data that I can receive. Also, the use of technology is a benefit. The students enjoy the fact that they may get to use they phones in class In An educational and fun way. Great way to review material or to just have fun.

Cons: I found that there were not many pre made quizzes, so that was a con for me. Besides that, I don't have very many cons. If a student doesn't have a phone or tablet, it is difficult for them to participate.

Pros: I like how easy it for students to join a game for test review. My students get supper excited when they can see how they rank against classmates. I like that I can copy other games that are shared through the public access feature. Easy to make your own games.

Cons: It only allows so many characters to be entered, so long questions are difficult to do. The music is sometimes distracting.

My students love playing Kahoot and it is extremely easy to set up and use. I highly recommend it.

Pros: You can access Kahoot for free and once you set up an account you can create quiz games in just a few steps. I also really like that you can search for quizzes that are already set up and tailor them for your own purposes. It plays some wonderfully cheesy music while waiting for participants to answer.

Cons: The visual is not always particularly attractive, but at least you can customize to some extent if you upload an image.

Overall: Great for assessment and review in the classroom; very engaging.

Pros: It is fun! Whether using it for department training or a formal classroom setting it gets people engaged and involved. People are competitive and want to be part of the activity.

Cons: Designing the activity sometimes needs a little more flexibility. Some of the questions need to be true false, more than four options etc. It is much easier when you have one type of assessment at a time.

Overall: It is easy to assess my class and engage them in the learning process.

Pros: The free version is enough for me to assess students on their knowledge before a lesson or to review content after a lesson. Our teachers love it!

Cons: The music can be irritating, but it has a mute button. Because the nature of this product has rapid-fire responses, teachers need to intentionally take the time to explain or repeat questions.

Pros: Fun free and interactive multiple choice game with a emphasis also on speed to get your points.

Cons: Question only appears on the projected screen, not on the participants mobile/gamepad.

Overall: Great way to engage your audience in real time. Participants join via their own mobile and race to answer correctly the multiple choice questions. Can be ran with large groups in the room or combined with a webcast to run a global event. Would be better if the question also was shown on the participants mobile in case they cant see the screen in large corporate gatherings (everyone standing in the way) but this is a great tool and is free!

Recommendations to other buyers: Great way to get large groups to engage and reinforce their knowledge. Try the blind kahoot for a unique way to deliver presentations without slides.

Pros: It is easy to use, graphics & music make students love the competition while learning and reviewing content

Cons: Teachers can do team play however computers and devices are needed for individual players

Overall: I love Kahoot. It is so easy to use for test review, for brain breaks, and for team play. I like that teachers can share what they create saving valuable time. My students know when we play that they will be ready for the test the next day. The features allow students to choose a nickname then the scoreboard lets them know where they are in the competition. Teachers can download the results, this helps me to determine where my students need the most help or if the question to be reworded. If teachers or students do not have devices, team play can be used. Kahoot customer service is always looking for feedback, and is making the software better using teacher feedback. I even used it to study for a teacher certification test.

Comments: Kahoot was first tool I have experience its own type. Sure, I have used Quizlet live before. But Kahoot is much more than language learning, you can do pretty much every subject not limited to school activity. You can make it bit more fun buy playing games with friends as well. Overall I would recommend this tool as this is best within free tools.

Comments: I have been using Kahoot for a while. All on all, it is great product to engage students in learning process. You can create your own quizzes and it does not matter what device your students bring to school since your school supports BYOD. No problems with compatibility. Only downside would be with public Kahoots. Would love to see more quality content there readily available.

Recommendations to other buyers: sometimes bit complicated.

Comments: I first used Kahoot in a class for quizzes. It's very easy to set up and user-friendly. The website design is cute too. It made class so much fun and we went through a lot of textbook concepts by doing quizzes on Kahoot with other classmates.
