FREE AWESOME TECH ASSESSMENT TOOL TO CHECK FOR UNDERSTANDING

Tired of calling randomly on students to see how well the class has followed a lesson?  Care to turn the routine into something fund and engaging for all?  If the answers are YES, take a look at this app.

There are 3 informational videos which go into detail on how to use this tool in class.  Embedding "instant polls" into almost any lesson routine provides immediate feedback to the teacher on what must be retaught and to what extent.  Students like the anonymity (especially ELLs).  One's errors are not linked to any one student.  This safety feature will encourage more students to take part in such classroom assessments.

How about embedding polls into powerpoints?  It can be done with ease with this app.   There is a video which explains the process in under 58 seconds believe it or not.  As a teacher goes through the presentation, s/he can place questions in any slide and have students respond.  The entire class will see how well the material was understood by all.

Students could create polls within their own classroom presentations.  This tool will spice up any lessons no matter what the subject material!
