Keywords:education, elementary, assessment, online, Kahoot!
Many students and teachers alike appreciate the quiz game Kahoot! when used as an additive to normal classroom proceedings, such as in a review session, or as a formative assessment. However, Kahoot! may be useful in a more formal light in order to increase grades and engagement with classroom assessments. This research seeks to determine how utilizing Kahoot! in place of a formal assessment affects learning outcomes when used on a single math skill in a fourth grade classroom. This paper argues that Kahoot! is useful as a pre-assessment quiz prior to assessment to increase scoring and can increase student engagement and positive classroom dynamics, however the nature of Kahoot!’s question and answer format may not allow it to be used in a more meaningful context in mathematical assessment.
