An institution-based cross-sectional study on exploring the effectiveness of one of the electronic teaching–learning technologies (Kahoot! App) was undertaken. A 15-item e-quiz was conducted to a cohort of third-year MBBS students on the topic of Community Medicine previously taught to them. The students’ participation and feedback on the experience was quite positive. E-quiz using Kahoot! App seems to be an appropriate tool for formative assessment for the medical students and to improve their engagement in the classroom.
