    The thesis entitled Quiz as a motivational tool in the school describes positive features quizzes and their applications during classes. In the research, these effects are confirmed by the participating students and teachers. In the theoretical part of my thesis I first identified the importance of motivation in class for better and more efficient work of teachers and students. Below I described the origin of quizzes and their purpose and uses of them in class. In the empirical part, I used descriptive analysis as also content analysis of the answers to the questions from the surveys that students and teachers wrote down. I realized that the quiz is very popular among the students, mainly, because of the team work. The competitiveness for students is not so important, but is defined by the students as a positive feature of the quiz, just like the improving of welfare in the class. Even teachers are aware of the many advantages that the quiz brings, but they do not use it in class as much as students would like. The first reason for this is because they do not get a real knowledge view of all students in the group. The second is that within team work some students are not active at all. It was also indicated that for the preparation of efficient quiz requires more time than usual to prepare a written assessment. Teachers use the learning method quiz mostly to learn about society and science and technology. In these subjects is mainly factual knowledge, which is more appropriate to carry out the quiz than for knowledge at higher levels. Most of teachers have also come to the conclusion to not use quiz methods more often than usual.
