How I Use It
It can be used as both a formative and summative assessment. As a formative assessment tool, teachers can get a snap shot of student understanding with the quiz feature. The results spreadsheet makes it easy to differentiate based on readiness. The space race can engage whole group discussions and review. As a summative assessment, teachers can pair a quiz with a powerpoint presentation to create a multimedia test taking situation. The availability of wireless access did make this app difficult. This was function of our resources and not the app.
My Take
This app is a great tool that can be adapted to a variety of concepts and academic levels.
