Formative Assessment – a great site to help

We know that getting quick and accurate data during our teaching is vital to responding to student needs and guiding our practice. Does everyone “get it”? Do I need to revise, extend or move on?

Screen Shot 2014-02-14 at 2.07.17 pmQUIZ SOCKET is a free web site that is a simple, quick and painless way to get formative data to guide your teaching.

You don’t need to pre-prepare anything which means you can just use this site whenever it suits your needs. Just go to the site (no need to log in), get a unique code for kids to log into. Ask the question either orally or by writing it on the board and your students select A,B,C or D. Student responses come to you instantly in the form of a graph. It couldn’t be simpler and Quiz Socket makes a great exit ticket too.
