Plickers for Pre- and Post- Assessment!

Plickers is a digital tool that allows teachers to collect real time data without students needing to have a device of their own.  Teachers create a class on the and print out response cards for students.  Teachers enter questions in the form of a quiz they can then use as a pre- or post-assessment in class with students.  This form of polling students is much more engaging then traditional paper-pencil quizzes.  The teacher can also provide immediate feedback to students by showing the correct answer after all students have answered.

Third grade teachers Mrs. Shogan and Mrs. Couture have been trying out this digital tool to gather formative assessment data on their classes. Students love responding!
