These quizzes reinforce the exercises in the Chalkface Literacy Basics worksheets Pack 1 and Pack 3. There is a direct correspondence between the quizzes and the page numbers in each pack.
There are 10 questions per quiz. They use a rich variety of different question types to maintain interest, and every question includes formative feedback.
To get the most out of these quizzes:
- use them in conjunction with the worksheets, either beforehand as diagnostics, or afterwards as reinforcement.
- for reinforcement, allow 2-3 attempts per quiz, but not more.
- for diagnostic use, allow only one attempt per quiz.
- when assigning to a whole class, use the Teams feature to encourage competition.
The Wordles quiz covers 20 of the 32 topics and can be used for general reinforcement. It is not suitable as a general diagnostic, because its highly visual nature would skew the results. The Wordles themselves were created on wordle.net.
