Overall Satisfaction with Kahoot!
Our organization uses this application in similar yet different ways. We use this in individual classrooms, both at home and in-class. We use this in both primary and intermediate grade levels. For primary grades, we practice simple concepts with in-class review. In intermediate grades, students are able to create study sets, and teachers are able to create assessments by using reports within Kahoot. Teachers are able to monitor student progress and retention while dialing up student interest and involvement.

Kahoot is more engaging than Quizlet. Quizlet is simple and clean. Kahoot's user interface is a bit brighter and busier. Students pay more attention to Kahoot, and request to use it when reviewing information from a lesson or chapter. Kahoot can be used for multiple components of the same lesson. Quizlet also has not added many new features, while Kahoot continues to evolve and provide insight into topics like social emotional learning and professional development.
I have not had to use support for Kahoot since beginning to use this site. Kahoot does, however, provide many topics for help and support readily available. These topics are continually changed and updated as the site evolves. Because this resources is always easily accessible, I have not had to reach out to support from a representative.
The site's currently layout feels busy. If you are not a seasoned Kahoot user, it is easy to be distracted and overwhelmed by the information presented. I would not recommend this site to a novice computer user. If the user is tech-savvy and willing to navigate the help topics provided by the site, lessons and games can be created more easily with time and practice.

When teaching fifth grade, students enjoyed reviewing content covered in class by playing classic Kahoot games. As the site has evolved, teachers are now able to present lessons within Kahoot and use the same platform to review the content presented. Students do not have to changes sites mid-lesson. It is a game-changer.
