The Quizizz Name Factory generates names for your students to inspire creativity and avoid wasted class time.
Using The Name Factory is optional for students by default, but teachers can make it the only way to pick a game name by toggling the setting on when they start the game.
If the setting is toggled on, every student gets three options to choose from at the start of the game. This ensures that there’s enough variety without making it too time-consuming. Each Quizizz name in the Name Factory is a random combination of a famous literary character and an equally beloved (debatable) fruit or vegetable.
The combinations are randomly generated with thousands of possible permutations (again, students only get to pick from three in a given game).
How do I make using The Name Factory mandatory?
Open Advanced Settings before hosting a game to toggle this setting on and off.
How do I know my students’ real names with Name Factory?
If students are logged in, your quiz reports will include both their real names in addition to their game names.
How many attempts do I get to pick a name using Name Factory?
All players automatically get a Quizizz name if the Name Factory is toggled on under settings while starting a new game.
Click the refresh button to get an alternate option if you’re not entirely happy with the one on your screen.
However, each player gets only three name variants to choose from in a single game.
Why did we create The Name Factory?
We know that some students may get overly “creative” when writing game names to impress their classmates and others simply take too long trying to come up with something funny.
We wanted to give teachers back some class time and help students find safe and creative names without having to try too hard!
P.S.: An added bonus is inspiring your students to explore new books and healthy eating outside of your class.
