Description:

Teachers: Classroom Quizshow + Your Questions = FUN!

Lessons can be boring, but television game shows are fun. Shouldn’t your lessons be fun like a game show? Answer: Yes!

Use Classroom Quizshow to engage your students. There are currently five game types: tic tac toe, matching, dots, reversi, and sudoku.

I wrote the first version of Classroom Quizshow using Apple's HyperCard during my first year as a 4th grade teacher. My own students can’t get enough of it.

Classroom Quizshow has been used with ages from kindergarten through medical school.

Classroom Quizshow... because the only thing worse than sitting through a boring lesson is teaching one.

Release Notes:

With version 8.6.6 I goofed by not correctly migrating application data (saved question sets and teams) to the new location used by "sandboxed" apps. (Sandboxing is a fairly new system used by Apple to ensure greater security.) The result is you lost your old saved question sets and teams. I sincerely apologize. The good news is your old data still exists on your computer, and this update contains instructions in the Help tab for recovering it.

Classroom Quizshow! - It is so exciting to find this game suite in the app store! I have been in a classroom for 23 years and have used many different methods for teaching and reviewing material in all subject areas, but this program is one of the most versatile and easiest to use that I have found. I began with an older version, one of the first, and Mr. McNutt has created marvelous additions since then. The games themselves are familiar to most children (Kindergarteners LOVE Tic-Tac-Tournament and DOTS!); my older students really got into the challenge of the Flip Flop Flank game, and who doesn't like matching?!! The colors are bright and inviting; the fonts are easy to read, even if you have one of those older projectors or a little screen on which to play, and the students ask for it over and over again!! Your own classroom questions are easily entered or changed, too. I was not very computer literate when I began, and Mr. McNutt was always prompt with his answers to my online questions and so helpful. I can't wait to introduce this version to my classes with the new Sudoku game!
