Formative Assessment

Formative Assessment enables teachers to make frequent checks of students’ progress and understanding. Students receive immediate feedback, and instruction can then be modified based upon the assessment in order to best meet the needs of the student.  Technology allows teachers to formatively assess students.  The following article provides some excellent information about formative assessment:

Socrative

Socrative is an amazing app for teachers, and it is FREE!!  It allows you to create quizzes, surveys and polls and send them from your iPad to your students’ iPads.  Students can then answer the questions and they receive immediate feedback.  Immediate results are also sent back to the teacher’s iPad.  Did I mention this was a free app?!  Amazing!
