Strengthen students’ reasoning skills with new learning content from ERB on Kahoot!

Put your students’ problem-solving, critical thinking, and reasoning skills to the test with these compelling new kahoots!

Learning isn’t all about the destination; it’s also about the journey! While memorizing facts before a test is certainly helpful, it’s also vital that students know how to explore a question, identify key information, and put the pieces together logically to solve the problem. This makes reasoning skills essential for lifelong learning! To empower students’ reasoning and problem-solving skills for assessments and beyond, I’m excited to share that Kahoot! is partnering with ERB – a leader in educational assessment and data-driven insights – to launch a brand new collection of kahoots!

ERB Kahoot!

ERB is a not-for-profit, member-based organization serving independent schools. With their holistic learning assessments and measurement tools, ERB supports educators in thoughtfully and thoroughly tracking the entire student journey. One of these assessments is the Comprehensive Testing Program (CTP) for grades 1-11, which helps educators assess content specific, curriculum-based performance alongside reasoning ability and conceptual knowledge.

Together, we are now helping students practice important skills measured by the CTP and other assessments through this collection of engaging new kahoots. All Kahoot! users can host and play these kahoots for free—in the classroom, at home, or on the go!

Sparking engagement in key problem-solving skills

These kahoots will challenge your students’ reasoning in a wide variety of ways. By working through questions that call on quantitative as well as verbal reasoning,  students will practice using both numbers and language to solve problems. This makes these kahoots a great way to start conversations with students about 15 unique reasoning skills. 

Educators can introduce reasoning skills, including categorical reasoning—using logic to identify relationships and categorize subjects—as well as deductive and inductive reasoning. Tasks that require drawing specific conclusions from general information and drawing general conclusions from specific information involve logical processes we use regularly, making them foundational skills for problem solving both in the classroom and beyond.

From test prep to unlocking students’ learning potential

This partnership between Kahoot! and ERB is based on our shared goal of striving to unlock students’ learning potential. Bringing together ERB’s assessment expertise with the energy and interactivity of Kahoot!, this collection of learning content can foster student growth in areas of critical thinking and logic, which are vital for students’ success not only in assessments but also in learning across subjects.

“We are thrilled to partner with Kahoot! to provide our members with a fun and engaging way for their students to prepare for the CTP,” said Tom Rochon, President of ERB. “This partnership aligns with our mission to support and enhance student learning, and the Kahoot! platform will be a valuable addition to our suite of member benefits. We are excited to see the positive impact that this partnership will have on our members and their students.”
