## Convenient & FREE Practice Options For Your Students

A few folks were interested in the **Free EQAO Practice** via Knowledgehook’s Gameshow tool, but felt they didn’t have the time to experiment with a new tool during “crunch time” in the semester. I know the feeling!

Now, Knowledgehook has made it easy for students to practice any Gameshow independently without any setup, registration, or other hassles.

## Here’s how it works:

- Student go to a simple website address to play the gameshow.
- They receive instant feedback.
- Done.

This is a great way to give students the option to practice what they need to work on in a fun, interactive way.

## Drawbacks:

When students access Knowledgehook Gameshow activities via a link instead of through the website, there are some drawbacks including:

- Upload solution is disabled since they are playing without an account.
- Teacher cannot track student progress.
- Students cannot reflect on the work they have done because once they close the link, the information is lost.

So, in my opinion, I would go with teacher and student accounts, however if you are in a time-crunch at the end of the semester, this is still a great way to offer students an additional way to prepare for the EQAO Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics.
