UPDATE: the Roulette has been massively pimped up via Carousel learning. If you want to know more about that, click here.
A little while back I released the Retrieval Roulette with the aim of helping people build a simple system to embed regular retrieval practice into their lessons. Since then, thanks to the amazing generosity of twitter and the CogSciSci group I have now been sent a bunch more for the different sciences and exam boards. Help yourself and please let me know if you have one you can send to me! Unfortunately I was careless enough that when I emailed the links to myself I didn’t get everyone’s names so if one is yours please let me know asap so I can properly attribute. I’m also pretty sure I got permission from everyone but obviously if you want to take that back let me know and I’ll take it down asap.
I’ve also made a video for our parents to show them how to use the 5 question template to generate quizzes.
There are a load of different templates that people have been using and I’m kind of losing track. The one that I use most often is this one, as it is just 5 questions so it suits what we are doing with lesson starts at the moment. This one has all of GCSE chemistry (AQA) but remember you can just copy and paste questions no problem KS4 Chemistry triple new
I have a blank template here which has 5 questions as per usual, but also has a tab called “pen and paper” which lets you use the Do Now R tab to set a range of questions and then print off 30 random questions from that range but with a blank space for students to write answers.
If you want to know how I use these in the classroom, click here.
A note on copying and licensing of the Roulette: I designed and wrote the Roulette with the express intention of it being freely available to all. Others have then collaborated and improved on the roulette in the same spirit. Please do not try to sell a Roulette, even if the questions you use are your own. I do not want teachers to see something that looks cool, buy it and then encourage others to buy it because of the Roulette. If you wish to profit from the spirit of giving that has driven the incredible resources below, please put your questions into a Word document or a blank Excel document and sell it in that form. Feel free to send a link to this site and the free Roulette which people can use as a template.
