What is Quizlet exactly? We start with flash cards. Students can make their own, or choose from millions of flash cards sets created by others. But that's just the beginning - once you've got flashcards, you can use several study modes including multiple choice tests and study games. You can add images and listen to audio, and even study on the go with one of dozens of Quizlet-compatible mobile apps.

Students are the core of Quizlet. High school and college students, language learners, grad students, home school students, anyone studying anything. Quizlet makes it easy to create and share study materials, to study with a few friends or an entire class. And Quizlet is good for studying almost any subject, from languages and vocabulary to history to science and the arts.


Quizlet is free and advertising supported, registration is optional.

Quizlet is a study tools site for learners in mid-elementary school on up to college level. This site is user friendly, although many students in grades 4 and 5 will need a bit of assistance to set up an account and get started. Once they get going they can use one of the many pre-loaded vocabulary lists, a list that the teacher has loaded for them or they can create a list of their own. The lists are then used to create flashcards, create quizzes, study guides and more. Using a keyboard to create study tools can be a benefit to students who struggle with motor control and organizational skills. It would certainly be beneficial for a teacher in the younger grades to set up the site and then teach a few mini-lessons to share with students how to access the vocabulary and related activities. Parents would also quickly become fans of this helpful site.

This tool is a great way for students to make their own flashcards, or use teacher made ones. I love all of the options for using them: spelling, listening, testing, and games.

This tool would be great for students to review math terms. At the end of each unit I post key math terms for students to access and review before math tests!

Andrew Sutherland was a sophomore at Albany High School in California when he founded Quizlet in 2005. He was 15 years old. For the first 420 days of Quizlet’s existence, Andrew took it upon himself to do all the designing, programming, debugging, and perfecting for his concept. Boy, how things change. Now, still a student—albeit, a junior at MIT—Andrew’s little project has a dedicated team of people and has helped 13 million users (in 2010 alone). Quizlet offers 5,017,611 flashcard...

Below are two sets of flashcards a student of mine created for our English 8 class using Quizlet. Please feel free to share these two resources with your colleagues and students.I highly recommend Quizlet as it encourages effective study habits across multiple subject areas.Article source: http://thede-tech-tive4teachers.blogspot.com/2012/05/quizlet-excellent-study-tool.htmlRelated posts:

My favorite feature of Quizlet is its compatibility with various mobile platforms. Kaka Flashcards is my app of choice as our school has Android based devices but a search of the App Store (IOS) or Blackberry App World will produce similar products. I strongly encourage my students to use their mobile devices to study as often as possible. 5 minutes before dinner, 10 minutes while waiting for the bus, 15 minutes in the car, etc. – it is amazing how...

I must start off by saying: "What teacher wouldn't love to use Quizlet for their classroom?!" As an English teacher I would use this to implement the use of flash cards to prepare my students for an upcoming test or quiz and also as motivation to keep building on their strengths in the content because they can see how they are progressing with their percentage of questions correct each time they quiz themselves using the tool. A friend of mine who is a Science teacher uses this tool to prepare her students for upcoming tests and as a way for them to master the Periodic Table.

I wouldn't say that it could be used for every subject matter, but certainly the majority of them. I think the main reason they Quizlet has the appeal it does is because of the ease of use for teachers and the ability to create tests/quizzes from it, but also that for students it is not your typical flashcard.

All Language teachers will agree that creating flashcards is one of the most time consuming tasks. However, now we have good news! Quizlet is a great flashcard site that helps you create your own flashcards, and provides you with some great ready-made flashcards as well. As an ESL teacher, I find it to be very useful, especially for students who are not native speakers and do not have anybody at home to help them with their vocabulary. It is so easy to use that I even ask my students to prepare their own flashcards. They can also test themselves, which helps them understand their own weaknesses and strengths. I recommend Quizlet to all ESL teachers, as well as to students who are keen to develop their language and vocabulary skills.

What an amazing, time-saving resource for teachers to use regardless of their students' ages! I have spent a lot of time over the years creating flash cards to be used in conjunction with study guides for tests and as a quick partner/warm-up activity prior to class across the curriculum.

Quizlet allows you to generate cards quickly, while even searching for an exact definition.

I like that the cards can be customized to your own wording if desired, and you can even assign the cards to be made at home for homework or in the computer lab during one of your computer class days!

I highly recommend the flash cards and the generation process, and the self-quizzing process that allows students to study on their own without the assistance of an adult. I literally tell my students that there is no excuse not to study their vocabulary terms if their parents or siblings are unable to assist them since the computer can act as an outside party to generate and quiz them on their terminology knowledge!

Quizlet seeks to help teachers create or use existing flashcards for extra practice on a variety of subjects from languages, vocabulary, standardized tests...etc.

While quizlet is a useful tool for teachers, it is not a resource that I would use for every classroom. As an ESL teacher, I could create a series of flashcards to be used as a study tool for my students outside of the classroom. I would encourage my students to use this tool at home to practice various English vocabulary.

This is a good tool for extra practice for my students!

Quizlet is a great resource and time-saver! I have been able to find several existing sets of flashcards that will help us study and review this year. It is great for high school, as there is a large collection of AP and SAT/ACT cards. I love the art history collections that already have great collections of pictures.

One the features I really like is the multiple print options. Its great that you can print these as actual flashcards, but when you have a really large set, this can be expensive. There is an option to print the terms as a vocabulary list, using less printer ink.

This site produces better-quality flash cards than other similar sites I have visited. There seems to be more structure to the way the application creates the layout. It is also easier to use. I would definitely rate Quizlet as the top site for flashcards.

Quizlet is every English teacher's friend! It has wonderful resources that can be accessed in the classroom, at home, or even on the go, using its mobile app. I have used this web site to compile spelling lists for my students, as well as to show them how to make flash cards for studying. I also really love the fact that it has automatically graded quizzes and games that can be played for some friendly competition!

I use this tool on a weekly basis with my remedial classes in order to review the week's vocabulary. This is one of the best flashcard sites/apps that I have found for lower level students because it is extremely easy to use. Students can create their own cards for their vocabulary words. All their sets are stored online so that cannot lose them. Also students can share and print their cards so they study together or turn in their work to the teacher. My students like Quizlet and use it for their other classes, and they have also used the premade cards on the site.

This site is useful when supporting students with study skills. Students can create their own flashcards or use existing sets. I tell students that they can use Quizlet as a substitute for a regular unit review sheet. Many students enjoy studying using the site rather than writing out a review because they enjoy being on the computer. I have not used the sharing/group feature yet but some of my coworkers have told me it's a viable way to encourage students to study for exams together. I have only explored the history topics but there are sets of flashcards already created on a great range of content. Overall, a great study tool!

Easy to use flashcards. I always tell my students about quizlet if they use flashcards to study or not. The nice thing is that often time there is already a set created on the site for the topic one needs to study. Makes review for students very easy!
