Or a quiz from Kahoot! into ClassQuiz? Let’s learn how to convert from one quiz maker to another and how to export and import questions. We’ll walk through the following actions, and you can feel free to jump to any section that will meet your needs.

1. Export and Convert from Quizlet

Do you have a Quizlet Flashcard or quiz? Then you will want to follow these two guides and free tools from GetMarked:

For this demo, I decided to use this Quizlet Photosynthesis Flashcard.

Here are the steps I followed:

  1. Save and Edit. When viewing a public flashcard, choose SAVE and EDIT from the ellipsis (three dots) as shown.
  2. Create. You will need to create the flashcard after making any changes you desire.
  3. Export. Now that you have your own edited copy of the flashcard, click the three dots again and select EXPORT.
  4. Use default settings. Do not change anything that appears.
  5. Copy text. Click the copy text button in the window that appears.

You are now ready to use the GetMarked MCQ Converter. Follow these steps:

1. Convert. Paste the copied text copied from the Flashcard into GetMarked MCQ Converter. Click CONVERT. Click COPY. This will put a copy of text in your device’s clipboard. As soon as you click COPY, the EXPORT button appears.

2. Export from MCQ Converter to Text to Quiz Converter. When you click EXPORT, it will take you to another page, the Text to Quiz Converter. At this point, you can paste in the text and choose from a drop-down menu what you want to convert to.

At this point, you can now convert your Quizlet flashcard to any of the following:

  • Google Forms
  • Gimkit
  • Kahoot!
  • Quizizz

This process is pretty straightforward.

2. Import Quizlet to Kahoot!

Export your questions from Quizlet, then use GetMarked MCQ Converter process above. Here are the steps you would take:

  1. Convert Quizlet to Kahoot! using GetMarked MCQ Converter and Text to Quiz Converter tools.
  2. Save the generated XLSx file with questions.
  3. Go to Kahoot! and create a Kahoot! Then click ADD QUESTION.

3. Import Kahoot! to ClassQuiz

A few educators have asked me, “How do I get questions from Quizlet into ClassQuiz?” The process is simple. If you want to use ClassQuiz (open-source and free), then you can import your converted Quizlet quiz that is now in Kahoot! Format into ClassQuiz. 

To do that, open up ClassQuiz and go to the IMPORT tab at the top of the screen:

Kahoot Import to Classquiz

Paste in the Kahoot! link you copied into the appropriate box (left side). Then click Submit. After a few moments, you will see the imported Photosynthesis quiz in ClassQuiz:

4. Import Quizlet/Kahoot! to Quizizz

If you have a quiz you want to import into Quizizz, all you need to do is use the GetMarked tools. Since Quizizz imports from Google Forms, you would follow these steps:

  • Export from the original quiz tool (e.g. Quizlet) then use MCQ Converter to get question text.
  • Copy that text and paste it into the Text to Quiz Converter.
  • Select Google Forms as the output, then click CONVERT.

Once you do that, GetMarked will give you a multi-step process to get the questions into Google Forms. It will involve using Google Scripts, but it is straightforward.

Upon completion, you can open a fresh tab in your browser, and look for the most recent document (check RECENTS). You will see an oddly named Google Form. Click and open it to see it:

At this point, you can go to Quizizz, and select Google Forms:

After you grant appropriate permission, you will get a list of files in your Google Drive that you can open:

Quizizz will work on the import process:
