Quizzam! makes giving quizzes in the classroom fast and fun. It’s also a great tool for study groups and homeschool environments.
The flexible, easy-to-use buzz-in app for classrooms lets teachers and students use iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch devices in a group setting. This turns teaching, reviewing, and testing into a game that keeps students engaged in their learning. Best of all, Quizzam! is simple.
• Easy setup and configuration for teachers: connect with your wireless network, create a passcode-protected Classroom, then choose your mode
• Easy log-in for students
• Play in two modes:
Buzz In: Identifies the order in which students buzz in
Multiple Choice: Identifies which students answer correctly and sorts by speed of response
• Monitor Participation: Teachers can monitor classroom participation to see when students have not answered or have left Quizzam!
• Supports an unlimited number of students
• All you need is the app and your device!

Great app....in theory
I purchased this app to use in a classroom setting as a buzzer. I like doing interactive activities with students, whether I am teaching high school or college.
I had planned to set up two teams and use this app as the official buzzer to indicate which team responded first. By the way, to achieve my goal meant one person from each team would need to have or purchase the app, and load it on her phone.
A few days before my intended use I tested out the app using my phone as"teacher" and my husband's phone as "student." (Note: we each had to purchase the app.)
While the directions are very simple, there is one fatal flaw. Once you log in as student, it says look for your classroom. That was one of the main problems. Nothing showed and it didn't say what to do if nothing showed up. We tried it about three times and then magically, my class appeared. Then the app worked as expected. I was excited, but it also bothered me why my class didn't show the first couple of tries and I would not know what to do if the link to my class did not show up again.
The next day I gave it a try in a classroom setting. I found two students with similar iPhones, reimbursed them the $.99 cents to load the app, and we gave it a try. Unfortunately, we ran into the same problem, only this time, my class never magically appeared. So, we never got to use the app.
If this app worked as intended, it would be nice.
Great for classroom -- wish it had an adult "color scheme"
Very easy to use and connect. Wish it had an option to be used with a more adult or plain theme since I do use it in a room for adult training s. Will still continue to use hopefully they come out with different themes! Also sound for the buzzers would be cool.
