The final stretch for TNReady is here, and I wanted to provide you with a few online options when reviewing. While the TNReady assessment is now paper/pencil, there are several online tools besides MICA that will provide live data to help you plan your review lessons. If you find something you would like to try, let me know. I will help you create your assessment and implement it in your classroom. Please don't hesitate to ask. I am here to help you!

Google Forms

Google Forms is a powerful tool for teachers, and while it may seem very simple at first, it is loaded with options and features for teachers. It will allow teachers to create multiple choice, multiple answer, and short answer questions. You can also add images and videos to the question. All information is tabulated on a spreadsheet and can be automatically graded. Forms will generate graphs based on the answers and give you a quick idea of where your students are based on the topic.
