Creating engaging and exciting assessments for students so that I can check for understanding on key concepts.

Pros

Kahoot is a brilliant creation! If you teach in a one-to-one setting or have access to devices, you need to consider using Kahoot right away! Basically, it's a student assessment tool, but you it's a game-like setting, which makes it fun for the students. Here's why I love it:
- First off, students love playing it! The friendly competition is engaging and they are always excited to share what they know in this game.
- It's so easy to set up for teachers. You can create your own Kahoot question sets in a matter of minutes. In maybe 10 minutes you can create a fun, 10-20 question quiz game for your kids. Quick and easy!
- You have the ability to obtain data on your kids! After the Kahoot, you know what your students do or don't know. And then you can use this data to reteach concepts they're struggling with.
- They offer an online library where you can use other question sets created by other teachers. That's extremely handy! Just review what's been created beforehand to make sure it's appropriate for you kids.
- It's always been reliable and worked. I can't say the same for other edtech tools that I consistently use. Kahoot's website just always works!
- They recently offered a team mode which challenges students to collaborate on quizzes. This is a cool update, and I expect to see Kahoot to continue to be cutting edge with their product.
- It's simple to get students "logged in." All that's required is for them to type in a link, enter a number, and add name.

Cons

I am a big fan of Kahoot, so I have nothing to complain about. I would just recommend users to use it wisely. If you want extremely reliable data with little error, you may want to choose another platform. Kahoot encourages students to think and answer quickly, and they may lead them to occasionally select the wrong answer by accident or because of the time feature. You obviously wouldn't use this for a unit test. Similarly, you probably wouldn't use this to pinpoint gaps for individual students. But it is helpful in getting a big picture of gaps of knowledge or trends, if that makes sense. This is also isn't the best tool for tracking data over a long period of time - this is a tool for quick assessments or check-ups. That's not a complaint about Kahoot, just an encouragement for you to use it appropriately!

Overall, Kahoot is really ​good software that works best for refreshing and reviewing certain topics. It helps really well in retaining the questions and answers in the participant's​ mind as it works with pictures. So the pictographic memory side is also used that enhances​ the chance of retaining the information.

Pros

the software is good in the sense that it​ is easy to use, as easy as 123. It's very basic and not complicated to work on. It's also fun to use as It automatically ranks​ all participants after each and every question.
It is colorful, hence it is enjoyable to use, it's like learning while playing.

Cons

What I least like about the software it that when you access it using a mobile phone, It lags a little. And since participants are being ranked based on their answers and time to answer, those who experience such technical issues will be behind by a​ ​few​ seconds, which is already a loss​ of a big score ( this is a bit disappointing, especially​ when there is a prize for the top winners).
This issue has been experienced in both Apple iPhone​ and Android Phone.

Pros

You can use it in multiple ways in real time (trivia or polling). The leaderboard encourages the employees to keep going. Also the graphics with anonymous names is a great feature!

Cons

Nothing I think it does everything that is required
