What are the different kahoot types for?

Before you start building a kahoot, you first have to choose a "type" to build. Each type is intended for a slightly different experience.

Unique to the quiz are features like assigning right/wrong answers and toggling points on/off. When a quiz is played, there will be a scoreboard between questions to show the current top-scoring players. Use quizzes to introduce new topics, review recently learned material, and ultimately add fun/reward to the learning experience.

Unlike a quiz, surveys don't have right/wrong assigned to answers, and there is no points system or scoreboards. You will still see a bar graph between questions showing how many chose each answer. Surveys can be used to find out what participants already know (or just learned) without competition, and you can use the bar graphs to guide conversation.

If you're in the middle of a lecture/presentation and want to quickly ask a spur-of-the-moment question (and record responses for later analysis), consider creating a discussion. This is identical to a survey, but with a limit of only one question. Discussions aim to get you through building the question and into hosting it quickly.

A Jumble offers the same competitive-play as a Quiz. But Jumble questions come with a twist by challenging players to place answers in the correct order rather than selecting one correct answer. Learn more about this new kahoot type here.
