Power-ups are designed to increase engagement and participation from students. They are enabled by default in the Live, Team and Assigned Homework modes of quizzes and can be disabled whenever a quiz or lesson is hosted. Power-ups are not present in the Lessons and Test modes.

 

Power-ups are used once per quiz. Students see the power-up icon at the bottom of their screen and it is activated when they click the icon to activate this feature for a particular question. Once it is used, the power-up button disappears from their screen.
