Week 5 - Quizzes

Welcome to an overview of week 5, focusing on quizzes, tests, and interactive assessment. This is a light week because you don't have to create much. What's cool about this week is that you can find many activities or have something generate the activity for you. It's very hands-off, allowing you to be proactive or let someone else do the hard work.

Exploring Quizlet and Quizzes


Quizlet is a very popular tool that most teachers are likely familiar with. It's mainly used for vocabulary, but you can also use it for quizzes. I use Quizlet extensively, with both free and premium accounts. I'll discuss the differences and how I use it in class, but overall, Quizlet is a lot of fun.


Quizziz is similar to Quizlet but typically involves a multiple-choice setup. You can sequence the content to present material and then have the quiz interact with your slides, much like some tools we've seen before. A great feature of Quizziz is the ability to search for any quiz online, covering a wide variety of topics. Both Quizlet and Quizziz are excellent because you don't have to create the activity yourself; you can search for pre-made content and use it in your class. This is particularly useful for common language topics like present continuous, past tense, comparative verbs, adjectives, and more.

AI Tools for Quizzes


On the topic of tools that create content for you, there's a new site called Revizely, an AI quiz generator. I'm not very familiar with it yet, but we will explore it together and see what everyone thinks. Revizely allows students to use AI to make flashcards and quizzes, offering a familiarization option for those interested.


Socrative is another excellent tool for creating quizzes and generating real-time assessments. Students can choose answers, and you can see which students are struggling, which ones are not, and identify difficult or easy problems for the class. Socrative makes it easy to assess and engage students effortlessly. Many of my colleagues at the university use it, and we will look at its pros and cons.

Other Useful Tools

Speech Notes

Speech Notes is a voice typing and transcription tool. It's great for saving time by transcribing your spoken words. You can also use it for language learning by giving students prompts to say and then checking their accuracy. There are many fun activities you can do with Speech Notes, and it can save you time. It's a light, easy-to-use app that's very useful.


Finally, I want to discuss Teachable, a robust system for assessing students. Teachable allows you to create free quizzes and courses. If you want to create and charge for your own course or have an online school, you can use Teachable's services. I'll show the backend, how I create courses, upload content, and the time it takes. This will be a general overview, and if time allows, I'll also talk about Thinkabit, a similar service.


That’s it for week 5, focusing on Interactive Assessment. It's a light and orientation week, allowing you to explore and save time by using tools to create content for you. You can use Quizlet or Quizzes to find pre-made materials, and tools like Revizely and Teachable's AI elements to generate quizzes. Quizzes also has an AI element that we'll explore. This week is also a catch-up week, where you can relax and learn about other tools. Next, we have the video week, another light and orientation week, showcasing different ways to create video content. Stay tuned!

Meet the Teacher

My name is Todd Beuckens and I am an ESL teacher in Japan. I created this site to provide teachers and students free audio lessons and learning materials not usually found in commercial textbooks.
