CatholicQuiz.com is a resource that provides excellent Q + A referenced to the Catechism and the Bible in interactive quizzes and games directed at children in a fun and exciting online format.
This resource is perfect for the “Catechism Challenge” found in week 5 of the program campaign manuals.
CatholicQuiz.com is organized primarily for schools, so each boy is given a unique identification and password to login as a “student” of a “class” (the program: Father & Son etc).
Once logged in the boys are presented with games concentrated on different aspects of Catholicism.
As each boy plays he can track his performance and the totals of his class.
As “teacher” (Club President) you are able to track each boy’s individual performance as well as all “class” totals. It is suggested that you provide the login information to the program directors to allow them to track their programs without going through you every time.
This system allows the boys to play at home as well as during the club meetings (week 5) and still have their performance tracked and to earn points for their squad.
Setting up a CatholicQuiz.com account
To get started, go to www.catholicquiz.com and click on the “login” link.
Ex: User Name : MWilliams
Password : CQ041-LGA
Your user name is your first initial and last name (up to 12 characters). Your club’s Conquest Annual Membership ID is the password. The password is Caps sensitive but the user name is not.
“Your organization’s information” is simply the club and its location.
The section titled Classroom Information is where you enter the programs, each program will be called a “Class” in the CatholicQuiz.com system.
The scorekeeper tab is where all the performance records are kept, sorted by ‘class’ and by each individual boy within that ‘class.’
When each boy is added they are automatically generated a user name and password that you will give to the boy. You can print this certificate (membership) for each boy to take home.
the boys play at home
From this point forward each boy is free to login on any computer with internet at anytime. He will be asked to enter his teacher’s last name when he logs in, which is your last name as you entered it in your account.
Once logged in the boy can play the games and review both his stats and those of his class.
Week 5 Competition
During the meeting each squad can come and answer the questions together, competing against the other squads. Which game the boys play is entirely at your discretion, just be consistent.
Let each squad play enough rounds to settle any ties.
Optional: The points for each squad can be tracked all year long, so subtract the previous accrued points each time you use this competition. An excel spreadsheet is available for this purpose on the Club President Resource Center online.
Cq-iq point tally
As the year progresses, the boys’ point totals will increase dramatically, but the relative ratios between the boys’ scores will remain consistent.
You can choose to simply add the totals year to date, or use the excel sheet to keep track of how many points the boys earn each individual campaign.
To issue a challenge, simply click the link “Classroom Challenge” found next to the games. Choose “start a challenge,” specify a title as well as a duration and enter the names and emails of the club presidents of the clubs you wish to challenge. If they accept, the challenge is on! The names and emails of every club president in the country can be found by clicking the “find a club” link on the Conquest webpage: www.conquestclubs.com
Search on the interactive map to bring up all of the clubs in each state or territory.
