JazzQuiz lets the teacher run a preplanned quiz, but with the power of improvisation. Several improvise questions are included, which lets you quickly run a multichoice or short answer question during the quiz. You can also start a vote on the students' responses. After the session, you can review the responses for each question (even repolls). You can also download reports for attendance or responses in CSV.

What is it?

JazzQuiz is designed to be used in face-to-face lessons. The teacher may plan questions in advance, but can also easily improvise on the fly.

Write your question on the blackboard, and select an appropriate question type from the dropdown menu. Several improvise questions will already be included: Short answer, multichoice (3, 4 & 5), true/false and if installed: STACK algebraic input. (If you install STACK after JazzQuiz, you must enable the question type in the JazzQuiz settings)


During the lesson, the teacher starts the quiz. Students can now connect to this quiz.

Once the teacher is satisfied that all students have connected to the quiz, they can click on Start Quiz

Depending on the question settings the question will end automatically, or will need to be ended via the instructor's

End question button. The teacher can start a vote, with the selected responses, which students can answer.


The teacher can, at a later date, go back through the results and, for each question, see exactly what answer each

student gave. The repolls are treated as separate questions, and you will get a correct order in the review page.

    Brilliant work - many thanks! Solves most of the issues we had with Active Quiz, in particular the ability to review and export the responses of the entire class.
