Receive Immediate Feedback to Improve Instruction
Provides an interactive real time feedback for students using smart devices. Teachers enter multiple choice, true/false quizzes, and images to create student assessments. Students respond using tablets or smart phones.
Similiar to Kahoot.it. The difference is students may move at their own pace when answering questions. Students will still need a smart device to participate. The feedback may be displayed on the screen for the class to see.
This class assessment also provides real time feedback. The plus to this tool is the student does not need a smart device to participate. The student holds up a card with a QR Code to submit their answer. The teacher uses an app on the smart device to scan the room and receive immediate feedback.
