The Weekly Quiz

With a Weekly Quiz subscription, you get a professionally designed current events quiz for each week of the school year. It helps students to keep up-to-date with current events and general knowledge in a safe way and contains visual material that leads to many class discussions about society and the real world.

Apart from running it as a class quiz, some schools also use it for research starters, team challenges, homework or as a newsletter competition. See the testimonials below for more examples, or look at the sample quiz to think how it could be used with your learners.

Our Weekly Quiz service has been running for over a decade and is popular in hundreds of schools across New Zealand.
It’s suitable for students from Year 5 to Year 13.

What’s included in the Weekly Quiz?

(click titles below to find out more about the quiz)

Each week the quiz consists of twenty international and New Zealand questions that help learners understand the news and the world around them. Questions cover politics, events, issues, discoveries, sport, entertainment, knowledge etc.

We focus on news items that are safe for the classroom, avoiding violent crime and inappropriate content for the classroom. Our quizzes are used in a wide variety of state and private schools.

There are five visual questions each week that include people, places, events, flags etc

The Multi-choice, True/False and Short Answer questions make it easy for students to complete and engage in the quiz. The questions formats lead to straight-forward answers and limit confusion or disagreement.

Some background information is provided with each answer to outline the news story and what has happened. Even if the teacher hasn’t heard the story themselves, they can use the background information to provide context to the students.

Depending on the subscription level you choose,
the quiz can be provided as:
– a printable worksheet (PDF)
– a classroom presentation (Powerpoint)
– an online quiz completed on individual or group devices (Interactive using the Socrative platform)
