PERCEPTIONS OF KAHOOT
We did conduct a survey on students’ notions about Kahoot. We took a random sample of twenty
students to be part of our study.
Do you think Kahoot is an excellent way to assessment
Out of the sample population of twenty students, fifteen of the respondents asserted that Kahoot
has one of the best techniques for assessing students. These group of people argued that Kahoot
games are well equipped with the best assessment content and cuts across all ages of learners.
Only five respondents were of a contrary opinion.

Do you think Kahoot has quality content
When students were asked their perception on the quality content of Kahoot seventy six percent
of the respondents did subscribe the assertion that Kahoot has the best quality content. Asserting
that Kahoot content is anchored on several settings that is good for learners. Kahoot at school
helps in provision of relations between students and teachers within the school or on open
distance learning programs. Kahoot at work provides the best platform for interaction in e-
learning, informative presentations, and training. Kahoot at home offers a good ground for
family and home study relations through its educative games. Only twenty-four percent of the
respondents were of the contrary opinion that Kahoot has questionable content that may not be
helpful to the students since most students will always be playing the games to attain high scores
without necessarily understanding the concepts.

When the sample population were asked if Kahoot has reached its desired goal in learning,
twenty-seven percent of the respondents had a different perception. They did assert that Kahoot
has provides fewer interactive platforms and submission of clarity on topic is dependent on the
teachers will. Seventy-three percent of the respondents did attest that Kahoot has achieved its
desired goal. It provides an excellent platform for corporate education learning, provides product
information, and provides contact information that can be used for future or further reference.

Do you think other nations should adopt Kahoot
PERCEPTIONS OF KAHOOT 4
Based on the success of Kahoot in learning nine students from the random sample recommended
Kahoot to be adopted by nations around the globe. Asserting that engaging students is the main
root of empowerment and development at work, school, and at home. Kahoot provides relations
platform and runs on a good way, in alignment with influencing students’ studies around the
world. Seven students from the random sample were of a contrary opinion that Kahoot should
not be adopted with nations around the globe, arguing that Kahoot is expensive to implement and
taking such learning techniques will need an additional resource. They further assert that the use
of Kahoot will only be limited to developed nations and civilized societies. Four students from
the random sample were not sure whether Kahoot should be adopted or not.
Yes NoNot sure
should kahoot be adopted across the globe
When we did take a random sample of twenty students from both private and public learning
institutions to be part of our survey. It is clear that seventy-five percent of the students believed
in Kahoot as the best assessment method and only twenty-five had a different opinion. Seventy-
six percent believed in the quality of the Kahoot content and only twenty-four percent did not
believe in the content of Kahoot. Seventy- three percent of the respondents believed that Kahoot
had achieved her learning goals and twenty-seven percent believed that Kahoot had not attained
her goals. Forty-five percent of the respondents believe that Kahoot should be adopted globally

and thirty-five percent asserted that Kahoot should not be adopted while twenty percent were not
sure. From the above studies, we can deduce that use of Kahoot for learning has influenced
several learners and therefore suitable for adoption by a bigger population. Going forward the
challenges that come with Kahoot should be addressed to remain a viable learning technique.
5. Limitations and recommendation
Kahoot provides a fresh ground away from the ancient teaching methods like notes taking and
lecturing; however, one of the significant concepts of Kahoot is to evaluate ideas and
vocabularies to make room for tests. Kahoot provides the most comfortable and straightforward
avenue to partake an assessment. Some scholars have asserted that note-taking is the best way of
keeping data and information. On the contrary, Kahoot argues that note-taking consumes a lot of
learners' time and that Kahoot students will be able to save time and engage in more meaningful
Kahoot brings about freshness in the learning sector through games. For one to attain more
scores, he/she must be in a position to respond to the questions very fast, and the quicker he/she
is, the more scores attained. Kahoot teaches its users that speed is necessary over real knowledge
found from the learning materials and understanding of questions. Kahoot, at the same time,
provides more credit to learners. Participants in any game are always working towards winning
games to get additional points. However, learners may not comprehend the answers to whatever
question is asked.
Each time a new question is floated, the participant has only five minutes to go through the
questions and provide the answers. Such limited time will make the learners absorb the questions
thoroughly. The fact that Kahoot's additional scores stress on response time and not really
understanding is not fair. Some learners may not be well equipped with the knowledge in the
game's learning material but still accorded the five-minute reaction time to get additional scores
for their letter grades (http://www.commonsense.org/education/website/Kahoot). Apart from
having disadvantages on the learners, the creators of Kahoot games, who on several occasions
are teachers, cannot ask a complex and challenging question that will precisely assess leaners'
understanding on the game because of the time restriction for answers and questions in Kahoot.
PERCEPTIONS OF KAHOOT 6
Kahoot games are not applied to teach gadgets thoroughly. The way Kahoot assesses materials is
too attached to the time provided to respond to the questions and tutor’s discussion regarding the
wrong response. For example, if several leaners react to a question wrongly, the teacher may
choose to discuss why or proceed with the game. It means that the learner may not get to know
why the response given is wrong and how he/she needs to go about the question next time.
