How I Use It
I used this primarily as a check for understanding. I am an integrator and I have always been disappointed that many people who do this work plan collaboratively, deliver collaboratively, but leave the assessment for the classroom teacher. This is a really nice way for me to work through the entire process with teachers and demonstrate a simple way to get data from the class that can be reflected on - with collaborator(s) - to see where we have been successful and objectives that need to be re-visited. We look at the results and work together to report out on the work that has happened during the activity - closing the activity.
After a few successful runs the MS principal heard about the work and began modeling using the tool to get feedback and information during division meetings. Its a well liked tool by many teachers here at school.
It is a clean relatively simple to use tool that enables students on multiple devices to respond to quizzes and provide instant feedback to them and their teacher. Students enjoy the tool (especially in "SpaceRace") and the canned exit ticket is something that once understood can be run with very little front end preparation.
