Abstract

Literacy in the English language is, undoubtedly important as it is one of the prominent languages in education over the years. Among the four skills, the most difficult skill to be mastered by ESL pupils is the writing skill and using idioms is even more challenging. Locally, the use of idioms in writing for national examination, Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 1119/1 paper, is essential because it reflects pupils’ language competency., thus enhances their chances to score more credits. Self-assess learning (SAL), on the other hand, plays an essential role for teachers to provide suitable and accessible learning material. Pupils could access these learning materials at their own convenience via a game-based platform (Quizizz). Hence, this is a mobile self-assess learning via Quizizz. This action research aims to determine if Quizizz could help forty seventeen-year-old pupils from a suburban school learn idioms. Findings and discussion are based on the comparative analysis of their continuous essay writings, the number of idioms used pre-and post-SAL as well as their achievement scores from each level of the quizzes provided in Quizizz.
