What is it? 

This learning technique implies the use of clusters of five true/false quiz questions related to one topic. Students are provided with 5 questions/statements /facts concerning a subject. They have to decide whether the notions are true or false. 

Once the assignment is concluded, the goal is that at least three true/false statements are correct. This is an arbitrary number of course, but it adds an appealing element of playfulness to the challenge. Once concluded, discuss the questions/statements /facts with your students. This will clarify misconceptions and reinforce the learning process.


How do you implement it?

Creating quizzes in LessonUp is a straightforward process that you can learn in no time. Once your students have placed their choices, you can immediately review their answers, and provide them with real-time feedback both in person and/or digitally. 

The results of all the quizzes will automatically be saved in your students’ reports. 

Where does it work in the class?

You can implement 5 about 1 during all lesson phases: as a lesson starter, to revise with your students in preparation for a test, or as part of a formative assessment. Make it as complex and as challenging as you prefer. Apply it to any subject matters, level of instruction, or class.
