Key features for review and formative assessment

Get actionable insights from reports

Visual reports on live games and student-paced challenges will help you assess how the class performed, identify difficult questions that need followup, and reinforce learning in a targeted way.

Assess class progress in real time

You can get a snapshot of how your class performed in a kahoot immediately after playing it, which gives you real-time visibility into learning progress.

Assign student-paced challenges

In a student-paced challenge, learners see questions and answers on their screen, and they can play both in class and at home. You can turn off the question timer to promote accuracy, which makes this feature particularly helpful for content review.

Share insights with other educators

With a Pro or Premium subscription, you can easily share reports with other teachers and admins from your school, giving them visibility into the learning progress.

Reuse existing kahoots for review

No need to create a new kahoot from scratch! You can duplicate and edit existing kahoots created by other teachers, pull questions from our question bank, or add a few finishing touches to your existing kahoots to optimize them for review.
