Quick Key Mobile

Quick Key eliminates hand-grading of quizzes, tests, and formative assessments, even for teachers working in paper-based classrooms, without a computer. With Quick Key, you can spend your time addressing the different learning needs of your students, not messing around with grades and grade books. Quick Key is easy to use, and doesn't require you to change anything about how you teach. But you might, once you discover what you and your students can accomplish when assessment is effortless!

What does Quick Key do?

Quick Key turns your phone into an optical scanner to grade quizzes, tests, and surveys on paper, up to 30 questions long. Then, Quick Key allows you to run analytics right on your phone, then upload the data to your electronic grade book.

Using Blubbr you can create interactive quizzes that are based on YouTube clips. Your quizzes can be about anything of your choosing. The structure of the quizzes has a viewer watch a short clip then answer a multiple choice question about the clip. Viewers know right away if they chose the correct answer or not.

Very interesting.  Something else to look at.

Suzy Romanelli's curator insight, April 9, 2014 11:52 AM

This is a great tool. I could see many uses in business.  It is interactive,  so will keep learners motivated.  On the SAMR model it will fall in the category of Augmentation, useful for show and tell and then confirmation of learning (behaviourism).

This is a very easy to use tool, well explained with good potential for marketing, training, PR and community relations.

Content Mastery and Problem Solving Skills

Content Mastery and Problem Solving Skills | Design Revoluton | Scoop.it

Most of the specific questions were on quizzes. This is because in my AP and gen. physics classes I give all quizzes on Canvas. I have quiz banks set up, from which Canvas pulls random problems, and the students do their best to answer them. Most of these questions came after I said that I gave the students multiple attempts on the quizzes (up to 5, at their own pace in AP, and as many as needed by conference in gen. physics).

One question went something like this, “Well, how do they take the quizzes? In class or at home?” I could tell right away that the concept of multiple attempts was throwing the teacher.

I'm no fan of high stakes quizzes/tests.  Instead I prefer the method advocated in this blog piece:  unlimited attempts.  


For me a quiz is a highly motivating opportunity for some guided review.  In an online environment where test security is always an issue, unlimited attempts removes the pressure.

Using Multiple Course Evaluations to Engage and Empower Your Students and Yourself

Using Multiple Course Evaluations to Engage and Empower Your Students and Yourself | Design Revoluton | Scoop.it

Course evaluations are often viewed as a chore; one of those unpleasant obligations we do at the end of each course. In the Teaching Professor Blog post "End-of-Course Evaluations: Making Sense of Student Comments," Maryellen Weimer is bang-on in stating that the comments students dash off can be more confusing than clarifying.

Evaluations as formative evaluation will structure feedback and give your students a voice.  Sometimes you're able to make course corrections during the class. Other times, you revise materials for the next semester. 

Lynnette Van Dyke's curator insight, January 2, 2013 8:15 PM

I'dlove to know more about this course!

Test and Assess – be a curator!

Test and Assess – be a curator! | Design Revoluton | Scoop.it
A key component to this process, which is tied directly into active assessment strategies, is synthesizing or making sense of the information gathered. Sense making can be writing a blog post using the links (like this post) or summarizing the key points in a presentation. Gathering and collecting specific content points is the beginning, and creating the theme is where an individual demonstrates their analysis and evaluation of the content included in a post or presentation shared. Kanter wrote, “Content curation is not about collecting links or being an information pack rat, it is more about putting them into a context with organization, annotation, and presentation.”

This article will help you understand how curating relates to both Bloom's taxonomy and the Engagement Pyramid proposed by Charlene Li and Jeremiah Owyang.


For those who must plan to standards, this article will give you great theoretical backing for teaching and using curation in your classroom. 


Bronwyn Desjardins's curator insight, December 27, 2012 5:19 PM

I agree. Education used to be about finding the information. With potential access to everything now, the focus should be on making sense of it and finding connections, drawing correlations and making conclusions - to become thinkers.
