The student will show up in your teacher dashboard, but the student data will be not be compared over time to show progress. Quick play is useful as students don’t need to remember usernames or passwords. ​ Log in with Zzish. If you want to record student data over time, then your students need a student Zzish account. This is so that we know the student is the same student each time they use Quizalize. It’s easy to create student Zzish accounts. Students who have email addresses can simply go to www.zzish.com and create a student Zzish account by entering their email address and choosing a password.
