Question repetition has been one of Gimkit Live's defining features since the beginning.

Thanks to so many educators requesting an update to repetition, in April 2021 we added Smart Repetition to Gimkit Live.

Smart Repetition repeats questions students missed the first time around more often in live games (all modes) and assignments. To do that, we use a lottery system that prioritizes questions students got incorrect the first time they answered them.

Smart Repetition, like the rest of a Gimkit game, is student-specific. So Student A and Student B will have questions repeated depending on how they each answered the questions the first time around. Student A's repetition lottery is tied only to Student A's answers.

There's nothing to turn on and no setting to change in your account or for live games. Smart Repetition is on for all games, all of the time.

For a more detailed explanation of why we built smart repetition and how it works, we have a 90 second video:
