7 Steps to Supporting Learning with Quizlet

Her eyes welled and my heart broke. Just the mention of the word can set off test anxiety for some of my students. This time, the save came in the form of a compromise through technology. She agreed to review the vocabulary on Quizlet and take a practice test.


The next morning, she couldn't wait to tell me how well she did on her practice quiz. I checked out the practice tracking, and her classroom experience that day was everything you could want from a teenager struggling with a fleeting self-esteem – the kind that turns the world dark every chance it gets.

Why Quizlet?

I have always loved Quizlet. It's great for printing card sorts, quizzes, and digital study aids. I've even used it in lieu of a slide presentation. The app works great on all devices, and it's easy to share decks, folders, and track progress in classes.

Then, I discovered that you can record your own voice for 30 seconds each card. Making videos has been the way to flip classes for many years now, but this is much quicker. Plus, try making a quiz automatically from a video or a card sort.

Here's what I do.

1. Make a Deck

You can make a deck from scratch or search Quizlet for one that meets your needs. I often search first because there's usually something that may only need a few taken away or a few added to be complete.


2. Import Terms

Take your old vocabulary lists or quizzes and import the terms. It saves time, and the site guides you through the process by design.


3. Auto Define

Here's another time saver. Once you've spent the 15 seconds it takes to import your list of terms, click the auto define search icon on the far right to select a definition that works for your students. You can still edit the one you choose, and make sure the languages are set for the term and definition.


4. Add Images

The image option is great in the classroom and for homework. Sometines I use the deck in lieu of a slide presentation because the images switch to full screen when you click on them.


5. Record Narration

The text can be read automatically by a programmed voice. You can also record your own voice up to 30 seconds. I like this feature because it gives me the ability to remind students about the context of the word they are learning. The possibilities with this feature are very exciting. It's not complicated. Play with it.


6. Share the Deck

Quizlet let's you share directly to social media, Google Classroom, a Quizlet folder, or class on Quizlet. I use the classes and folders because the users will know where to find the decks.


7. Track Student Progress

This is the best. When students practice on Quizlet, the data is tracked for each student, game, and individual term. I often start a class with a review of the class summary. The terms are grouped and listed by achievement. Think about what this can do for learners who need to develop a sense of priority. It's great immediate feedback.
