How I Use It
I used this app to support developing ownership over assessment with students in secondary math. It worked particularly well for student with individual education plans. They can grab a class device (or their own) and scan their QR code. It takes them to their "assessment stream" where they can add a note, file, image or video. I can later connect it to the curriculum expectations. This gives me an easy way to document the triangulation of assessment.
My Take
A great tool to help meet the needs of the realities of the busy classroom and triangulation of assessment.
