Playposit!

Learn about one of the district's newest formative assessment tools: Playposit.


Learn on your own using this Quickstart Guide or at a BFLEX session!


What can you do with Playposit?


  • Search through the Playposit community for previously created interactive videos (called "bulbs") to use with your classes tomorrow!
  • Create your own interactive videos using content from websites such as Youtube or Vimeo (or your own!).
  • Use the dashboard to obtain data about students' use and performance on the embedded assessment items.
  • BONUS: integrate your Playposit activities with Schoology to quickly give access to your students AND allow activity scores record to your Schoology gradebook.
