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.

This app lets you create amazing classroom communities with students and parents. Teachers can communicate with parents and students privately- no need to exchange phone numbers.  You can give feedback to students for any skill like “Working Hard” and “Being  Respectful”.  Students also can share their works.

Parents and students can check everything about the lessons.
