I am always looking for interesting ways to think about assessment – great post.
Socrative is an awesome formative (and summative) assessment tool for teachers. And, most importantly, it’s free and usable on any web-enabled device.
I have used Socrative in class with students and with parents at an open house. In a previous post I wrote about how great Socrative was, but recent updates have made it even better! I really like the preset “Exit Ticket.” Socrative also gives you several ways to get the data out of the app.
It’s an app that is well worth your time to explore.
Let me know what you think. Do you use any other web based tools with your students for formative assessement?
