Below is a collection of some different iPad apps that you can use to gather feedback, run quick formative assessments, initiate instant question polls and more!
Socrative lets teachers engage and assess their students with educational activities on tablets, laptops and smartphones. Through the use of real time questioning, instant result aggregation and visualization, teachers can gauge the whole class’ current level of understanding. Socrative saves teachers time so the class can further collaborate, discuss, extend and grow as a community of learners.
Plickers is a powerfully simple tool that lets teachers collect real-time formative assessment data without the need for student devices. Just give each student a card (a “paper clicker”), and use your iPhone or iPad to scan them for instant checks-for-understanding, exit tickets, and impromptu polls. Best of all, your data is automatically saved, student-by-student, at plickers.com.
