Kahoot is a web based learning platform to make gamified quizzes and tests in a variety of subjects. It is widely used in schools and other educational institutions.
How to make a Kahoot
Step 1: Sign In/Create an account
Go to https://kahoot.com/ and either sign in with your Kahoot account or if you don’t have one, create one or sign in with Google, Apple, or Microsoft.
Step 2: Get into the Kahoot quiz editor
Once you have logged in, at the top right hand corner you will spot a create button. Go ahead and click that button and click the first option which is to create your own from scratch.
Step 3: Changing the settings
At the top left of the blank question template you can name your Kahoot and use the settings button right next to it to alter things like the description. On the right hand side of the Kahoot, you can change the question type, the time you get to answer the question, as well as how many points you get. At the bottom right, you can duplicate or delete the question.
Step 4: Making the question
Going to the top of the screen you will find a long box which will be where you input the question. The colored boxes below can be filled with answers. You need to have at least two answers (if you are using the multiple choice option). Once you have filled in an answer you will notice that there is a circle on the box. This marks whether the answer is correct or not. Click the box if it is. Remember that you can have more than one correct answer. Above you will also have recommended images as well as the option to put in your own.
Step 5: Making more Questions
To move on to the next question click the “Add Question” button on the left side of the screen and click the “Add Slide” button to get a custom formatted question. This will give you a new template to work on for your next question. Remember you can also duplicate the last question if you want to keep some changes.
Step 6: Saving your Kahoot
Once you are done, click the “Done” button on the top right of your screen or if you want to exit for a while, click the “Exit” button. Once you have clicked “Done”, you can click done again or press the “Play now” button
Step 7: Playing Your Kahoot
Once you have clicked “Play now” you will be able to host or make a challenge game and once you have finished setting the game up you will get a code that you can share with your friends which can be input into https://kahoot.it/. Once you are in, the person hosting the kahoot will have to share their screen with the others and they can answer the questions on their screen. At the end you can see who won and what questions were difficult. Enjoy testing out your brand new kahoot!
