  1. Show Questions/Answers On Every Screen/Device

    Instead of just seeing four colors, I'd like the option to turn on having the text of the answer show up as well. This is especially helpful for students who have coordination issues reading off a screen and transferring the answer to their device.

        Hi all!

        I just wanted to chime in and say we’re looking into this. For the time being, are you aware that there are several free services that allow you to ‘screen share’ (stream your screen over the internet)? We do this multiple times a week to play together across the company.

        Some examples are Google Hangouts, Appear.in, Twitch.tv, Youtube. If anyone has experience with these or others, please feel free to share you insights!

      • Create pools of Kahoot questions

        It would be wonderful if we could create pools of questions that a Kahoot could draw from, so that that particular Kahoot wouldn't be the same every time it's played.

        • Eliminated from game if you get the answer wrong. PLEASE VOTE

          My students sometimes make careless mistakes because they want to answer quickly rather than accurately. We tried it in class yesterday, if they missed a question they were out of the game. The goal was to get to the last question, the points did not matter. I found that they did better when they had time to look at the question and choices without being concerned about points

          • Time - on or off

            be able to choose if you want to use the length of time feature or not. There are times that I would rather have them think about a question and not rush it.

                • Hint options for low scoring players to prevent discouragement

                  I think the ideal hint option for struggling players would be to eliminate one wrong answer choice for the bottom two-thirds of players and eliminate 2 wrong answer choices for the bottom third of players. This would greatly help with the discouragement some kids feel when playing.

                  • Awarding points for getting the question right; however, don’t penalized students for taking a longer amount of time to solve the problem.

                    I am trying to use this in my classroom for math, and I would like to award points to all students for getting the question right; however, I don't want to have the students penalized for taking a longer amount of time to solve the problem.

                    • Turn music off

                      I would love the option of turning music and sound effects off during Kahoot. I could play my own music without sound from the game. This is especially beneficial when wanting to play with special ed students where the sounds can be overwhelming.

                        • Permitting students to change their answers (perhaps at the cost of fewer points).

                          Several times per game, students accidentally hit a response they did not intend to, and are unable to change their answer. This would avoid any such issues and the competitive frustration that learners often feel when it happens to them. If data from this were included in the results spreadsheet, it would help educators to understand not just what students know, but also how confident they feel in their answers (are they changing frequently?).

                          • Extend the leaderboard to top 10 and/or have biggest movers

                            Would like to see the leaderboard extended to Top 10 as we often do quiz with 30+ in class and/or feature showing which student was biggest mover, either with +/- places or simple up and down arrows

                              Hi all!

                              We’ve recently released the highest climber feature. With regards to the leaderboard showing the top 10, it’s still under consideration.

                              Here are some details on the highest climber:

                              The highest climber feature will randomly appear on leaderboard screens identifying who’s moved up most in rank within the last three questions. It has roughly a 33% chance of populating if the following conditions are met:
                              - the highest climber must be outside of the top 5 leaderboard
                              - the highest climber needs to have moved at least 3 positions up

                              Per those conditions, having a larger group of players will increase your odds of seeing this features. 8 players is the minimum.

                            • Option to show/hide leaderboards and scores in between questions.

                              As an educator, the option to show/hide the results would be awesome!
                              Please fix it!

                                • If students get logged out, they can log back in using the same nickname without losing their previous points.

                                  Logging back into game without losing their points would be awesome. Students get booted out from time to time, either by toggling between apps or wifi connectivity. They get discouraged when their points start over again, so if they could log in (using the exact same nickname) and start where they left off, that would be awesome.

                                    I would love to be able to have them put their real name and nickname. The nickname to display on leaderboard but real name for grading purposes in the download.

                                    • Being able to switch between "Total top 5" and "Top 5 this question" between Kahoots

                                      When doing a quiz it would be nice to get as many different names as possible up on the screen during a playthrough. "Best players this question" would do that.

                                      • Pause the clock

                                        ADD: the ability to pause the clock in a question (more time is needed or the teacher wants to point something out).
                                        Thanks!

                                        • It would be good if students could simply play a quiz - without having to launch it.

                                          Teachers could share a link with students that when clicked takes them directly into play mode. They can play at any time this way and don't need to "launch" the quiz.

                                          It means no competitors, but students could use it for revision in their own time. I've looked at GhostMode and I don't think this achieves that.
