Pedagogical implications

This tool would really benefit your students. Quizrevolution is a platform for do-it-yourself quizzes and surveys. Thomas (2009) makes a point of using these web 2.0 tools with our students because they will be able to “to share and contribute ideas and work.” By doing this, they would have the “ability to truly extend the walls of our classrooms.”

Motteram (2013) states that vocabulary, grammar and syntax are important blocks in learning English. He also writes:

ICT has traditionally done this part of assessment very well through the use of multiple choice, true or false, ranking, matching and other types of self-assessment exercises and quizzes.

ICT can add value to these types of assessments too. Online quizzes can be provided that students can access at any time, allowing for greater flexibility in the timing and organisation of assessments. Many systems can even automatically mark student input, which has the potential to impact on the timeliness of feedback, provide students with useful knowledge of their progress (at least in terms of grammar, syntax, or comprehension questions) and allow students to repeat the exercises as needed.

[…] This scaffolding approach can be very powerful for this type of procedural knowledge in ELT. There are a number of free tools online that can easily be used to produce online quizzes and tests.

As Motteram has stated above, Quizrevolution fits his description because it helps you create online quizzes. They provide our students with the practice they need to improve their reading comprehension skills and also their grammar and syntax. For the teacher, this tool is user-friendly. Quizrevolution webpage describes their platform as follows: “They require zero programming experience and zero designing expertise.As you will read below, it would not be very difficult for the teacher or the students to make a quiz.
