How I Use It
I used it in three ways. First, I had it as a whole class response system. As I would teach, I would push out quick quizzes to students to check for understanding. Second, I used the exit ticket option to ask for feedback or any lingering questions students had about that day's lesson which I began with the next class. Finally, the most effective way to use this app (I believe) was the Space Race. I had this app as a station during a review stations activity. It was a small group of students (only 4), so they each got their own iPad and raced against each other through AP World questions. The only downfall here was the time it took to type in all the questions and the explanations. However, there is a code you can type in to share and collaborate with other teachers to use their questions.
My Take
This is a great tool for any test prep or quick polling that you need to do. The app allows you to create custom quizzes complete with a variety of question options (multiple choice, true/false, short answer). It also allows you to run an exit ticket or a fun rocket space race game. When teachers create the multiple choice, they can add explanations in when students get questions wrong. I would have given it 5 stars, but it takes a long time to add in multiple choice questions (especially if you want to type in the explanations to the correct answers).
