Formative assessment is a way for teachers to track student understanding. Technology today has made monitoring progress easier than ever, and allows for teachers to improve their instruction. Programs have the ability to collect data continuously and adapt formative assessments accordingly. Teachers can now utilize technology to get data instantly through games, apps, videos, and task sheets. One educational tech program is Kaboot.it. This program allows students to see who answered correctly, and who answered first. The students sign into your class using a game pin you provide them, making it quick and painless to set up.
I am not sure i agree with allowing students to be able to see who answered first. That concerns me because it may make students rush to answer and not really think through the question. I do not mind them being able to see who answered correctly. Kaboot.it is just one of many programs that use similar features.
