Assessment tools offer you, potentially, a dramatic time savings.
If you are fortunate enough to have one-to-one technology in your classroom, you are likely using a variety of learning tools, but are you making full use of time-saving assessment tools?
Join expert trainer, Monica Burns, as she shares free assessment resources that are customizable and can be used before, during, and after a daily lesson or unit.
Here are Monica’s recommended assessment tools for the classroom:
- Nearpod. Interactive presentations where you embed quizzes, polls, & interactive responses.
- Edmodo. Facebook-style community where you can have a message board.
- Classdojo. Collects data on positive & negative behavior.
- Socrative. Create your own assessments such as exit slips, multiple choice, short answer, or true and false.
- Understoodit. Check for understanding during class presentations, lectures, and films. Often more appropriate for upper-middle or high school.
- Screenchomp. Records student work that you can share via email, tweet, or other. Replays work great as a digital portfolio.
- The Answer Pad. Students use this web or iPad app to record answers.
- Google Forms. Great for wrap-up, while allowing for customization and tracking student progress. Also good for creating forms with missing homework or informing students of incomplete assignments.
