How I Use It
Using the "Add Image" feature, created multiple choice review and test for a mini-unit on Art History. It's great to see instant feedback on students' understanding, and even better, the aggregate of specific questions, which before required an excel spreadsheet and an advanced degree in mathematics.
My Take
Prep work pays dividends! The work comes on the front end: creating the quizzes. Assessment is done for you in real time. I will be using this again for my end-of-semester survey to get feedback on the units I've taught (One- and two-point perspective, gesture drawing, etc.). I will add an image of an example of each to jog their memories and will get instant results, which were so much more slow to come off the stacks of paper surveys I used to use!
