Try Mentimeter for Classroom Quiz Games

Mentimeter is one of the tools that I regularly feature when talking about gathering realtime, online feedback from students. It's a great platform for quick, informal polls. Mentimeter is also great for making fun quiz games to use for review activities in your classroom.

Mentimeter lets you create slides that then become the basis of your quiz game. You can have multiple choice and open-response quiz questions in your slides. The responses to each question can be displayed in a variety of ways including bar graphs, word clouds, and heat maps.

If you don't have time to build an entirely new quiz game from scratch, Mentimeter has a large gallery of pre-made games that you can import into your account. Once you have imported a game you can play it as written or modify it to suit your needs.

In the following video I provide an overview of how to use Mentimeter to create and play quiz games in your classroom.
