Formative Assessment Toolbox: FlipQuiz

FlipQuiz is a site that allow teachers to create Jeopardy-style quiz boards for test reviews or game nights. Teachers can sign up for FREE and create as many boards as needed. The boards can then be presented in front of a group of students to review for a test or practice mastery of content.

You can view an example of a FlipQuiz board at or check out boards other teachers have created at

The pro version has a few additional features that would make it worth the subscription price:

  • Team scoring for up to 10 teams
  • Image upload to answer cards
  • Copy other user's quiz boards
  • Create flash cards
  • Set boards to private
  • Set custom points

Creating a board is super easy. Click the New Board button from the dashboard or My Boards screen. Fill in a name for the board at the top of the screen. You can change the category names, and enter the questions and answers.

Once your board is complete, you can click the Presentation View to play the game. Boards can also be embedded on a webpage for easy access by students.

One of the great features in Presentation mode is the ability to set a countdown timer. In the bottom right corner click the clock icon. Just type in the number of seconds you want to count down and hit start. When the clock strikes 0, you'll see a flash of color to know that time is up! You can also check the "AUTO" box to let the countdown begin and end automatically as you choose questions.

I'm excited at the possibilities of this tool to help teachers check for understanding. If you use it, please let me know how it worked for you in the comments below!
