How I Use It
I embed checks for understanding right into my powerpoints and lets students contribute throughout the class. It's easy to get a pulse check, create exit slips, or give students a chance to share out think pair shares digitally and anonymously to reduce the affects of students affective filters. Students can create accounts to give answers associated with their name, or anonymously contribute to any poll created.
My Take
Formative assessment in a 1:1 environment via multiple surveys, pictoral representations, or free response questions is super easy with PollEv. It creates opportunities for easy exit slips, formative assessments, CFU's, TPSs, idea starters, vocab associations, or just as a conversation starters in professional development environments for adults.
