The Latest & Greatest
Formative Assessment Tools
for Your Classroom
...and one more!
What and Why
"...formative assessment does improve learning. The gains in achievement appear to be quite considerable, and...
amongst the largest ever reported
for educational interventions"
(Black & William, 1998).
“Formative assessments are ongoing assessments, observations, summaries, and reviews that
inform teacher instruction and provide students feedback on a daily basis
(Fisher and Frey, 2007)
Two Easy Formative Assessment Tools
Simplest tool of all
No student login required
Question posed does not stay on page
Must continuously scroll down to read responses
Online bulletin board gathers responses quickly
No student login required
Teachers can very quickly create a Padlet wall
Students can upload video, images, and documents
Ideal for student collaboration, brainstorming, sorting, etc.
Not ideal for collecting individual data
Cannot change font size
Student responses can overlap
Students can see their progress, as compared to others, in real time
Responses are graded instantaneously
Includes a score book that automatically catalogs student answers
Item bank of questions and assessments to pick from
Can track by standard or "Learning Target," not just assessment
Not all assessment types available in the free version
Free version only allows quizzes up to ten questions long
Slightly more complicated interface
Different types of questions PLUS a game
"Quick questions" included
Teacher - and/or student-paced quizzes
Can add images to questions
No student email required

the Space Race game is not for everyone...
Create a quiz; add images/videos, and set a time limit for student responses
Instant feedback to students
Many public Kahoots to choose from
Save student results to Google Drive
Scores are calculated based on the speed of the correct answer

Show students your presentation at your own pace-on THEIR devices
Embed questions between slides for instant feedback

Many question types
Presentation-creation tools are minimal
Free version does not include student-paced version (which would be helpful for students who were absent)
Embed text and image slides, drawings, and questions (open response, multiple choice and check boxes) into videos for your flipped classroom
Search for videos directly on the website
Students can go back and change answers; they can rewind the video and work at their own pace
Students can miss questions by fast forwarding the video
Unlike Zaption, students cannot skip over questions in Educanon's free version
Many useful features are not available with a free account (ex: auto-graded fill-in-the-blank, copy and edit public lessons, download grades)
Slightly less elegant interface
No student devices needed
Students hold up pre-printed, pre-assigned cards to answer multiple-choice questions
Teacher scans the class, and the results are automatically generated
Keep track of student results over time on app
If class is spread out, might take 2-3 min. to capture all answers
Cannot export student scores/results
