Today we're launching an integration with Google Classroom, so that you can use the Classroom Share button to send out Quizizz games.
How does it work?
Just begin a Live or Homework game as you normally would. On the page where you get the game code, you'll now see a Classroom Share button.
Click on the Google Classroom share button, It will ask you to select the class you want to share this game with.
After this you can send out this as an assignment or announcement containing a link that the students can use to join the game.
Students will see a new post in their classroom account to join the game.
When your students click the link, they will prompted to login with their Google accounts. They can still choose the name that shows on the leaderboard.
In the reports screen, you'll see their actual name from their Google account, as well as the name they picked for the game. Your students' data will also automatically be updated in your Google Classroom account.
Note: In case of homework games, it may take up to 24 hours after the deadline for data to update in your Google Classroom account. (This is because we don't clear the homework games until 24 hours after the deadline, just in case you need to extend the deadline.) In case you want the data to be sent to Google Classroom immediately, please use the "End Game" button on the report page. Live game results get updated immediately after the game.
How does it help?
There are a number of useful benefits of Google Classroom:
1. Better data: Now your reports will show the actual names of your students.
2. Safety: Since students need to login with their Google accounts, it will be easy to restrict participation, and ensure that inappropriate names can easily be traced to their rightful owners :)
3. Track assignments with Google: Now see assignment completion reports in Google Classroom as well.
4. More to come: We're soon going to add more ways to analyze your students' performance, and this is just the first step!
