What are the zApp types?
zApp authors are asked to define their zApp by one of the eight zApp type classifications below, which makes refining your zApp search that little bit simpler.
- Lesson: These zApps include an educational lesson on a topic followed by one or more questions to demonstrate the users understanding of the lesson.
- Tutorial: These zApps include an instructional lesson, but are not necessarily followed by questions.
- Exercise: These zApps include multiple questions about a limited topic, not necessarily accompanied by an introductory lesson.
- Assessment: These zApps are intended for use under test or examination conditions, and will often include a recommended zApp time.
- Project: These zApps provide instructions for a task that should be completed outside of sQuizya, and may include one or more self-evaluative questions.
- Survey: These zApps are intended for use in collecting data and feedback, polling results and easily collating the data received.
- Information: These zApps are intended to share information, such as notices or agendas, and would generally be for internal use.
- Other: These zApps fall outside the existing type classifications.
As a teacher user, remember that zApp questions can easily be imported into a new zApp, so even if you are looking for an assessment-type zApp to use as a class test, broadening your search to include lesson or exercise zApp types will yield more results which you can adapt into your very own zApp!
