Teacher Review For Stick Pick

Stick Pick lets me collect formative assessment data easily. Also, it's great for my English language learners . I can ask them appropriate questions.

How I Use It
Usually after I read to my students after lunch, I pull out Stick Pick and call on students randomly to check for understanding. Each day, I call on 6 or 7 students. After a week, I make it through my sticks and then reset it and start over again.
My Take
Before Stick Pick, I'd lose a lot of great moments and formative assessment data with students because it wasn't convenient to track it. Now, I can quickly rate students' responses and see how each student performed over time. Disclaimer: I created this app in 2011 and I still use it every day.
