How I Use It
I use this as a formative assessment prior to beginning a unit and as an engaging check for understanding.
My Take
It is an engaging quick way to check for understanding and to use as a discussion starter based upon class opinions or results. The prep time to build a poll is also minimal. However, the free version does not break down individual student data long term which would be useful to determine student growth over time.
