Instead of purchasing expensive and dedicated student response systems from SMART or Promethean, here are some alternatives around for formative assessment in the area of web-based classroom ‘clickers.’ If you have access to iPads, Chromebooks, or even student cell phones, you can utilize some great (and FREE) web based student response and feedback systems – without the need to purchase additional single-purpose devices.

Here’s a rundown of some great options out there, and what it’s  “Killer Feature” is:

Platform: Killer Feature:
Socrative Great overall features, has Teacher and Student apps, but not required
Mentimeter Unlimited responses – great for school wide surveys
Poll Everywhere SMS/Text voting from student cell phones, free teacher accounts
Nearpod Presentation and assessment in one tool, app or web based presentations, same app for teachers and students
Kahoot “Gamified” assessment, great for review, colorful and fun
Quizizz Gamified review, without the time pressure of Kahoot
Plickers No student device needed – uses paper cards and a teacher cell phone or iPad camera
Google Forms & Flubaroo Easy to build, no additional logins for teachers or students needed

Here’s a few more new tools to investigate. More details to come!
