This paper aims to investigate the influences of Quizizz on EFL students’
vocabulary achievement and examine learners’ perceptions of using this digital app at
University of Economics, and Technology for Industries (UNETI) during Covid-19
pandemic. This experimental research was conducted in eight-week intervention of the
academic year 2020-2021. Vocabulary test based on the curriculum and interview were
employed as data collection instruments to determine their vocabulary achievement as well
as perspectives towards the implementation of the online quiz. The statistical findings,
which were respectively demonstrated in mean scores, standard deviation and t-test
analysis, identified a significant difference between control and experimental class. As
indicated, experimental participants have enhanced their vocabulary. Besides, qualitative
data contributed deeper insight on students’ attitudes towards utilizing Quizizz to teach
vocabulary. Several pedagogical implications were recommended for future Quizizz
implementation at the institution.
