Plickers is a great tool to collect formative assessments from your class, without the requirement of individual devices. You can set your own multiple choice questions to check understanding of learning, and the students can respond to the questions using Plickers cards, which you can print for free. Simply scan the room of students with their Plickers cards held up, and the app will show the results of the question on screen. It’s a great starter or plenary to engage students with a new topic or to test their knowledge of the topic they have just learned. What’s more, you as the teacher get real-time feedback so you know who needs more help, or who needs to be stretched further.
Here is a step-by-step guide on how to set up a Plickers activity.
