Hi there! Welcome to Quizalize Basics for Certified Educators!

We've found that teachers trust the experiences of other teachers and learn best from them. That's why we're excited that you've decided to become a Quizalize Certified Educator.

We want to equip you with the tools you need to get the most out of your Quizalize experience and so you can be prepared to answer questions that other teachers might have.

 

Quizalize vs. Zzish

What is Quizalize?

Quizalize is a fun and engaging way to quiz your students with competitive classroom games or at home. Quizalize is cloud-based so it can work with any device.

Once your students have taken the quiz, you can easily analyze the results and get instant insights into who needs help and what they need help with while tracking long-term progress, improvement and curriculum mastery! 

What is Zzish?

As Certified Educators presenting Quizalize to other educators, you may be asked what's the difference between Quizalize and Zzish.

Simply put, Zzish is the parent company behind the Quizalize app and provides that data and insights that make Quizalize the top choice for formative assessments and differentiation.

In the future, our goal is to provide this same useful data for other educational apps and games you know and love.

What other tools do you currently use for formative assessments and differentiated instruction?
