Free Technology for Teachers: Great Tools for Informal Assessment

Free Technology for Teachers: Great Tools for Informal Assessment | Language Assessment | Scoop.it
This afternoon at the NCTIES 2015 conference I gave a short, interactive presentation on tools and strategies for conducting informal assessments in your classroom. Included in the presentation were demonstrations of Plickers, Kahoot, and SeeSaw. I also shared the idea of taking advantage of recording options on cell phones to have students record short video and audio messages about their understanding of a concept. The slides from that presentation are embedded below.
