Starting the session

When you open a JazzQuiz activity as teacher, you can start a session, from the view tab which is default. If you are going to use only improvised questions, there is no need to edit the quiz.

  1. Write a name for the session
  2. Click «Start Session»
  3. You get brief instructions, which you can read while the students connect.
  4. When you are confident that the students have joined, click «start quiz».

Students may still join after the quiz has started, but it is good if everyone feel that they are ready when the quiz starts.

Starting the first question

This is when the instructor has the most control.

  2. Clicking the bar (counter) starts a merge. The second bar to be clicked will be merged into the first one (adding the counts together).

All of these control buttons are activated:


Start the previously asked question again.
