The idea behind Rewordify came when I saw my students stumbling over Shakespeare. The difficult language got in the way of their love for the story. I figured there should be a better way so I started programming. Little by little over several years Rewordify was born, and literally millions of users rely on it to get over vocabulary bumps to see the beauty in the story. I still spend evenings reviewing word results and poring over recommendations to make the system smarter.
I believe that vocabulary is the biggest obstacle to comprehension for my students. And comprehension is the gate to higher order thinking. Monitoring my students’ vocabulary and comprehension levels throughout the year is imperative.
But, for my students, it is also important that I am engaging them in the classroom because I feel that if they are reading something that piques their interest, they are more curious and excited to learn.
Using quizzes to assess my students’ progress and growth is necessary, but I was spending so much time creating them, grading and assessing the results. I kept thinking that there had to be a more efficient way.
There are a lot of unique features. With Quizbot, I found that I was able to recapture that lost time of developing and scoring the quizzes. I was able to apply that time to improving and differentiating instruction based on the information coming from Quizbot. And, because Quizbot allows me to create short, frequent quizzes, I am able to see exactly where students need help.
The district and school push a lot of initiatives on teachers, rightfully so, and Quizbot was a perfect way for me to implement technology to do the clerical work for me. This allowed me to focus more on teaching and engaging with my students.
Very much so. Quizbot has also allowed me to differentiate the quizzes by both readiness and interest for my students. Allowing them to embrace their own interests increases their engagement in my classroom. I can create a few different quizzes on topics that I know are of interest to my students and they can choose which one they want to take.
Extremely important. Given Google is universal and can be accessed anywhere, I needed Quizbot to run on the Google platform to allow for a better experience for teachers.
Quizbot does just that by doing the difficult work for them. Now they don’t have to get bogged down by the logistics and the time associated with creating a quiz. Quizbot will do it for them and return the results automatically right in Google Forms. The benefits of this for the educator are immeasurable.
I hope that teachers see the same necessity for Quizbot that I do. For me, Quizbot is the answer. It allows me to monitor the growth of my students, improve overall learning and learning outcomes, and genuinely allow them to embrace their interests, while increasing vocabulary and comprehension.
It is not only what I need, but it is what my students need as well, even if they don’t realize it.
