Online Quiz

Grade: Fourth Grade
 
Objective: Students will be able to correctly identify the five acronyms from the test after the completion of the test during class.
 
Description: We will have been talking about acronyms and correct language usage online. We will also be talking about “text lingo” and slang and when to use and when not to use those words. The assessment will be given out after we have started our lesson on acronyms but not at the very end of the lesson. This assessment is a check-in point to see whether progress has or has not been made. Most of the acronyms on the quiz are real life examples; there might be one or two my students might now know about but we would talk about them in our Current Issues daily talk.
 
Rational: I chose to use QuizBox (http://www.quizbox.com/builder/) because when looking for quiz making sites this one seemed very easy to use and accommodate for what I was wanting. I believe using this site will help enhance my lesson by being a quick, easily observable quiz that will show me how or if students are understanding the acronyms we are practicing.
 
Access: Just click on the link at the top of the page. It should take you directly to the quiz. Once you are done answering the questions just click “Finish” and you can see your results. If you get 100% hearts will fly on the page.
 
Opinion: The tricky part about this site is that it doesn’t save the quiz you make on the website’s database, you have to save the quiz to your own website or as a webpage. I had to save my quiz a few different times with different formats to see which would work the way I wanted it to work.
 
**To save the quiz you make on this website, it worked best for me when I clicked File > Save Page As > ‘Folder’ > and then saved it as ‘Webpage, Complete’ in the Save As Type selection box. It DOES NOT work if you simply copy and paste the URL. That will take you back to the beginning step of making and formatting your quiz.

The Future

~ The only way to predict the future is to have power to shape the future. ~Eric Hoffer

: Be involved, get excited, do something so that your future is worth living.

~ We should all be concerned about the future because we will have to spend the rest of our lives there.  ~Charles F. Kettering

: Just as I stated previously, do something that makes life living for and something that you can look forward to in the future!

~ I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.  ~Albert Einstein

: Don’t always plan for things in advance, my spontaneous late night trips to Braum’s, Taco Bell, and Sonic are the best times of the day! Much is learned passed 11:00pm.

~ The past can’t see you, but the future is listening.  ~Terri Guillemet

: Even though you shouldn’t be looking forward to the future all the time, be conscious of the decisions and choices you make because if they are destructive enough, your future will be getting a swirly from the toilet.

Have fun, be spontaneous, live life,

~ It is an undoubted truth, that the less one has to do, the less time one finds to do it in.  ~Earl of Chesterfield

: This is exactly true! If you find you have something small to do, you always seem to wait until literally the very last minute.

~ The best way to get something done is to begin.  ~Author Unknown

: They only way you will actually do something is if you start it and it bugs you because if isn’t finished. Your mom always did tell you to finish what you started!!

~ I do my work at the same time each day – the last minute.  ~Author Unknown

: This is a great time during the day to do stuff….like SLEEP! Get things done early.

~ Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week.  ~Spanish Proverb

Now go do your homework,

Weekends

~ Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.  ~Bill Watterson

: This is the best definition of weekends! Unfortunatley, the weekends usually consist of everybody trying to catch up with all their chores and homework and everything else on that lovely to do list.

~ Weekends are a bit like rainbows; they look good from a distance but disappear when you get up close to them.  ~John Shirley

: Rainbows are pretty! I’m not really sure what to put here, this one it kind of self-explainatory. Just take timg to apprecitate the little things in life.

~ Weekends don’t pay as well as weekdays but at least there’s football.  ~S.A. Sachs

: Football is definitely in the universal survival guide…at least for most people. There are some people that don’t appreciate it like everyone else, but it’s still there. Go out and cheer for your team!

~ Mondays – God’s way of saying you should have behaved better over the weekend!

: Mondays, Mondays, Mondays….can’t you just skip for once? It would be greatly welcomed by many people! Maybe one day Mondays will become much loved instead of hated!

 

Enjoy Yourself,
