According to Bransford, Brown, and Cocking (1999) “assessments and feedback must focus on understanding, (and) assessments that emphasize understanding do not necessarily require elaborate or complicated assessment procedures.
Even multiple-choice tests can be organized in ways that assess understanding” (140). As an assessment based tool, Kahoot supports pre-assessments, productive formative assessments and student reflection, through fun quizzing, quick polls and surveys

Kahoot & the SAMR Model
- Substitution: Students participate in a Kahoot quiz to answer questions at the end of a unit instead of using a traditional paper quiz.
- Augmentation: Kahoot acts as a direct tool substitute of a formative assessment, with functional improvements such as the feature of adding video and images during a quiz to tap into the student’s knowledge, and reach different learning styles.
- Modification: Students access pre-designed Kahoot quizzes created by others to build their knowledge.
- Redefinition: Kahoot allows the participation of an unlimited amount of students or players in a survey in real time.
