We are continuing our walkthrough series this week with a look at one of the favorite games of teachers and homeschoolers – – the Vocabulary Quiz. While normally the name “quiz” does not bring us warm fuzzy feelings, this particular quiz will have your students singing your praises!
The Quiz is a simple question and multiple-choice answer game with a timer to increase the challenge. When you first click on the Quiz game, this is the screen you will see first:
As you can see, you have a choice of quiz topics, a choice of difficulty levels, length of game time, and how many questions to answer in that time period. You can also choose whether to include sound with the quiz or not by clicking on the audio button at the bottom of the screen.
Once you have made all your choices, and clicked on the “CONTINUE” button, you will be taken to the loading screen, which will confirm all your choices, and give you the option to go ahead and start your quiz.
If you change your mind about any of these options, you can simply hit the “Quit” button at the bottom of the screen to be taken back to the options.
Once you click on “Start Quiz” get ready to play, because your timer begins immediately. All you have to do is read the question and decide which vocabulary word will best fill in the blank. You will have the amount of time you set in the options to choose your best answer. Correct answers will show up in green. Incorrect answers will show up in red, with the correct answer highlighted in green.
Because it uses a fill-in-the-blank style of question and answer, the Vocabulary Quiz game is an excellent preparation tool for standardized tests. Teachers and students alike appreciate the simplicity of the game, but also the interactivity it provides. If you dropped by Vocabulary.co.il recently, be sure to stop in this week and play The Vocabulary Quiz or any of our other terrific vocabulary games and activities!
