Like Kahoot, Quizizz allows you to create multiple choice questions. Like Kahoo, Quizizz gives you a code that students type in to their device after going to a login screen (join.quizizz.com). And finally, like Kahoot, students gain points by answering questions correctly, and the faster they answer the questions, the more points they receive. The way that Quizizz differs from Kahoot is that students are not tied to the teacher's overhead to see the questions; students see the questions on their own devices.
The nice part about Quizizz is that students can work through the quiz at their own pace, but it still shows the teacher an overall ranking of students. Teachers like this because they can still use it for a formative assessment, but kids like it because they don't have to wait. Another great use for this feature is that you can assign the Quizizz as a homework assignment, assuming your students all have internet access.
This brings us to the main point of this post - namely that Quizizz now integrates with Google Classroom. When setting up the Quizizz, you will now see a Share on Google Classroom link. When you click on the option, you will be asked which class you'd like to share the Quizizz with. From there, you can send out an announcement, or create an assignment for your students.
