Plickers

Plickers is an online assesment tool for classes. It is different from other platforms in a way that it offers rapid assesment in a tech-limited class. Questions  should be prepared in advance and presented on a screen. Students will hold up their responses with pre-prepared cards and teachers can scan the cards with a device(ipad or smart phones). Each card is different. Also, every side of the card represents a choice ( one side is A, the other B etc.) These cards are really appealing. Responses can be seen automatically on a screen. Results can also be printed to track students’ progress or show it to parents. It is a useful and an engaging tool. Students enjoy it. That kind of unusual assesment tools motivates students. Morever, the app is free. It can be used especially in a low-tech classes. However, there are only true-false or multiple choice questions. Also, printing cards for each student might be challenging.
