#CanvasTrivia: It's the End of the Semester as We Know It, and I Feel Fine! (April 27)

Created by panda Administrator on Mar 31, 2017

Thursday, April 27, 2017 at join.quizizz.com (Game Code = coming soon)

Starts at 12:00 PM · Ends on Apr 28, 2017 at 12:00 PM, MDT (America/Denver)

 

The #CanvasTrivia game series is designed to test your Canvas and Community knowledge. Every Thursday at noon (MST), the Community Panda (and friends) launches a set of trivia questions. Players have 24 hours to submit their answers. Winners get points and bragging rights!

 

THIS #CANVASTRIVIA IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY BRILLIANT FACULTY/STAFF:

Alamo Colleges District

San Antonio (home of Alamo Colleges) holds their annual 10-day Fiesta (which is scheduled during the week of this trivia). The festival includes parades, concerts, street fairs, and benefits hundreds of locals charities.

Another fun fact: The iconic Alamo image is only a small part of the compound defended during the Battle of the Alamo in 1836. So it wasn't all about a single building.

 

Theme: End of School Year/Semester Stuff!

As the semester or school year comes to a close, teachers and admins start feeling the stress that comes with final exams, grading, and the logistics of concluding courses in Canvas. Students beg for extra credit, finals might mean heightened quiz security settings, and gradebook calculations take up your days. Are you feeling fine about it?

 

In the meantime, let this sink in...

 

Game Instructions

Please follow the following steps to ensure your score is properly accounted for!

  • RSVP 'yes' for each event. Those who RSVP will be notified immediately when the GAME CODE is available. (Otherwise, you'll have to keep refreshing the event page.)
  • Players have 24 HOURS within which to launch the game. We don't care when you play, but once you start your official timer begins. Each question has 30-second time limit. And every game has about 10-20 questions. In other words, allow yourself at least 5 minutes of un-interrupted game play.
  • Log into Quizizz (join.quizizz.com) on the web or mobile browser. When you're ready to play, use this link to submit your GAME CODE and answer the questions.
  • Be cool. Don't Cheat. Your first score counts. If you play multiple times under false names, you will be disqualified.

IMPORTANT: When prompted for a nickname, please use CANVAS ACCOUNT EMAIL (i.e. bob@school.edu). It's the same email that is used to authenticate you into the Canvas Community, too. Basically, if we can't easily identify the winner(s) with your username/school, then you may be disqualified.
