Plickers-Automatic Student Feedback with Only One Device

What is it?

Plickers is a classroom response app that teachers can use very easily without having devices for each student.

How does it work?

  • Each student is given a card with a unique visual code.
  • The code has 4 sides, each lettered A, B, C, and D.
  • The student holds the card so that the letter they choose to answer the question with is at the top of their card.
  • The teacher uses the iOS app on their iPad to slowly scan the room.
  • The app recognizes the cards, records who the teacher assigned them to, and captures the answer that the student chose.
  • The results appear live and in real time on the teacher’s device.

  • They can also be projected on a large screen for the whole class to see via the Plicker’s website if required.
