In particular, it is age groups such as 13 to 16 when students are in Middle School that tempered sore hire and it is difficult to keep a check on every student until and unless they learn to take care of themselves as well as their academic curriculum up to a certain degree. This is why teachers are always looking to find methods by which they can make the time spend inside the classroom fruitful and as stress-free as possible.
On the other hand, it is not viable to completely forget about doing well in school inserts of having fun while doing it. It is important to stay updated with the required curriculum and Express a level of knowledge that goes beyond just academic intentions.
This is why learning while having fun is one of the best ways to encapsulate ideas and make them a part of your thought process. Teachers who have been around children of Ford ages are aware of the fact that quizzes are an important tool through which the above can be accomplished. Confused as to how quizzes help the education process? Read on below to find out 6 reasons why
Help initiate interaction
In today’s day and age in an era of online tools such as enterprise resource planning systems which stands for ERP full form and others which are dedicated to only educational institutions such as learning management systems one of the major aspects that are missing from the long lost offline classes is the amount of interaction not only between teachers and students but also between two students themselves. Which school acted as a common ground it was easier for two strangers to strike up a conversation and become friends. However, the lack of an official platform made the way too much. Yet with quizzes, since it keeps Minds active and open areas for debate regarding some particularly difficult questions they help to give rise to interactions.
Help teachers provide feedback
In school, it is not just about how much you score on a particular test but also how you perform over an extended period which helps the school assess your capacity as a student. In such a scenario quizzes work as an alternative for a learning management system in the fact that they can be used by the teacher to assess the student and thus create feedback from it. Since quizzes are often a noncompulsory method of testing for the final exams, teachers may notice that many students don’t take it as seriously either having not studied for it or deciding not to show up. For maximization of the data thus collected from the class, it is best to throw surprise quizzes.
Help identify areas of shortcoming
Every teacher and student navigate through a given curriculum in terms of their plan. Whether it be a teaching or learning plan, including quizzes in the mix makes it easier to stick to the goal and any checkpoints in between. This is because any gaps in the process quickly stick out like a sore thumb, indicating what part of the syllabus needs to be revised. It is important to identify such areas of shortcoming, not only because of short term benefits such as having better results in the next term paper but because it helps build long term patterns of revision, which can improve not only teaching and learning patterns but also memory retention and practical applicability. Indeed, in this aspect quizzes can be a quick and easy replacement for habit-building training courses as pursued by the ERP system.
Help build confidence
Often it can be seen that students hesitate to answer a question, whether they genuinely are unsure of the answer or because they are suffering from peer pressure. The latter is a phenomenon seen much more often in middle school students. This takes away from the natural capacity of a student and can make them feel introverted in the classroom. Quizzes can thus be a silent method of rebuilding a student’s level of confidence as they can answer questions at their own pace and get rewarded for it.
