Formative Assessment & Data in One Handy Tool
Here's How It Works:
Ok, I can hear you now, "I don't have time to go around to every single student and scan their cards" That is why this app is so great, you don't have to walk around and scan each student's card. You should be able to stand in front of your room and scan every single response and this should all take no more than 30 seconds!
Pretty awesome, right? Using the Plickers app on your iPhone or iPad, you can see just how many students got this question right.
Break it down even further and see exactly which student missed the question and what answer they chose. This is a great tool to assess who may need more instruction before moving on!
When you are ready for the next question, just click the back button and choose the next question from your device. You can also archive your questions so you can go back and review results as needed.
First go to Plickers.com and sign up for an account. You'll also need to download the app on your iPad or smartphone so that you can scan student responses.
After you sign up, go to CLASSES, and click ADD A NEW CLASS.
Now that you've created questions and downloaded the app, you're ready to use them with your students! Simply pull up the Plickers website on your Smartboard and click LIVE VIEW. Then, using your iPad, choose the question you want students to answer and it will immediately change the screen that your class sees. Students hold up their cards while you scan responses, and that's it!
Getting everything set up will take about 30 minutes. Once you have everything ready to go, you can create questions on the website in a matter of minutes. Ann Dvorak originally showed me this app, she has been using it in her classes for some time. I'd love to hear from some of you who want to try it out! Let me know if there's any questions I can answer for you!
