Quizlet

About Quizlet:

Quizlet is a website providing study tools, that can be used for any subject area. On Quizlet, teachers can create their own "Study Sets" with terms & definitions for students to study. Study Sets are interactive flashcards for testing knowledge based on specific class content. There are also pre-created Study Sets available in many different content areas, which are free to browse, use, & assign to your class.
Randomized tests can also be generated from any Study Set. 
Interactivity options for students include the ability to:
  • Match definitions to the vocabulary word, or write the vocabulary word based on the definition
  • Hear the content on the flashcards spoken aloud, and/or "Type What You Hear" (great for language learning, and vocabulary)
  • Shuffle/randomize flashcard material
  • Track correct/incorrect answers
  • Play "Live" in a collaborative class setting with Quizlet Live (a lot like Kahoot)

Technology Requirements:

Teachers can create "Study Sets" on Quizlet (the term used for interactive flashcards) from any device. However, it is probably easiest to set up your Quizlet sets on a laptop.

Students can interact with Quizlet from the Quizlet app (iPads), or on an Internet browser (Safari, or Chrome) once the Study Set has been shared with them.

Here is a link with the browser & device compatibilities for Quizlet listed!
Below is a short video introduction to Quizlet:

Account Information:

There is a free version of Quizlet that anybody can sign up to use, and create Study Sets on.

Below are a few more "Frequently Asked Questions" that may help you use Quizlet in your teaching practice:


1. What is Quizlet Live, and how do I play one with my class?
2. Can I use any of the pre-created Study Sets? Or do I have to create them all myself if I want to share content with my class?

1. What is Quizlet Live, and how do I play one with my class?
Quizlet Live is like a Kahoot - it allows students to compete with each other in a "Live" activity (using your Study Set) after they input the code you will share with them. Look at the images below to start a Quizlet Live session with your class (it will also guide you through a few more customization questions).
You can also follow these steps to start a 1-on-1 Quizlet Live Session, or watch this Quizlet Live "Guided Tour" Video.
  • Go into the Set you want to play a Live session with (it has to have at least 6 terms in it).
  • Click "Live" on the left-hand menu.

 

  • Click "Create game."

   

 

  • Follow the other steps, until it displays the 'Join Code.'
  • Students will enter the Join Code by going to: www.quizlet.live or on the Quizlet app by clicking on "Join a Game."

2. Can I use any of the pre-created Study Sets? Or do I have to create them all myself if I want to share content with my class?
Yes! Even on the free version of Quizlet, you can use the Search, or Browse features to see if there is already a pre-made Study Set with vocabulary that could work for your class. It's important that you look at all of the vocabulary, and go through the whole set before sharing it with your class. 
  • Use the "Search" function, or Browse menu to view pre-created Study Sets in your subject.

       

  • Click on any Study Set that look interesting.

  • Once you've looked through the vocabulary terms to make sure they are appropriate, it can be shared with your class like any other Study Set.

Here are a few ways you might use Quizlet - have students...

  • Practice Vocabulary (in English, or Spanish): 
    • Create digital flashcards with the vocabulary word on one side, and the definition on the other
    • Or, use the "Match" option to practice matching the vocabulary word with the correct definition
  • Complete Quick Assessments:
    • Use the Quizlet Test feature to assess students on skills they are learning in class
  • Create their own Study Sets: These can be used for independent study, or to test each other (Students will need Quizlet accounts in order to create Study Sets)
  • Participate in "Live" Quizzes:
    • Quizlet Live allows students to participate in a Live Quizlet (a lot like a Kahoot), once they have entered the Quizlet Live code​​
