I am slowly making my way through the extremely long list of things we need to complete for our blog. Now I am up to the part where I complete a quiz of my own.

You can find my quiz through the following URL:

I only made a very short and sweet quiz with only two questions, as I thought we just needed to show that we can actually complete a quiz and we know how to navigate our way around the Class Marker website.

I found the quiz really quite easy to make. The explanations were very simple and straight forward, and the website was easy to navigate around. I believe that using a website such as Class Marker to create quizzes for your students would be an excellent idea. You only need to know what the questions are going to be for the quiz, and all of the rest is done for you. All you do is sit back, type the questions, and all of the formatting, etc. is completed automatically (I'm not sure about anyone else, but I have made a quiz before, and sitting down putting in all of the tick boxes was extremely boring, and this great website did it all for me).

I would have loved to create a quiz to show to my class and to reflect on that for you all, but I am not doing prac this term, so it was a little difficult for me to complete this activity. So instead I sat down with my 12 year old sister (she's currently half way through grade 7, almost at high school!) and we made a quiz together. She came up with the same idea's as I did, that the website was excellent in itself. We made a simple quiz that used multiple choice and free text. The only problem we came across with the free text was that if the child that was completing the test was a poor speller, or something along those lines, it would be extremely difficult for them to complete the free text section of the test.

  1. Hi Claire,

    I tried to take your quiz but unfortunately could not open it from your sounds like it would have been fun.
