Today I was working with first grade who was reviewing plants. We decided to try out a classroom response system called Class Responder. This was the first time I had used it and was excited about the "short answer" feature. Other student response systems like Plickers, Kahoot and Quizizz only allow for multiple choice or T/F type questions so that is why we wanted to test out Class Responder.
Their website states,
"Class Responder allows you to interact in real time with every student in class using smartphones, tablets, or personal computers. Teachers can assign lessons through Class Responder and students will automatically see the assignment and respond with their answers. You can review each student’s individual responses as well as comparing responses on a class level in order to measure understanding.
- Conduct on-the-spot polling with real time results.
- Create your own activities and quizzes. Quizzes can be multiple choice, true/false, or open- ended.
- Assign lessons as classwork or homework.
- Choose whether you want an activity to be self-paced or teacher-paced. Perfect for individual, small group, or whole class instruction.
- Provide immediate feedback to students.
- View and email results of completed assignments by question, by activity, and by individual student.
This is just another tool you can use in your classroom if you are looking for immediate feedback and/or a quick and fun assessment.
