The following blog is part of my EOTC class. I moved to a paperless classroom 5 years ago. This has helped me out because I was forced to put my material online. At the school I am leaving I had 90 GB stored on my Google Drive. I am not going to say all of it was material that would have been printed.
So it should not be a surprise that my assessments are online too. One of my favorite was to assess my students was to use Quizlet. I encouraged my students to go to the site to study the words using the match game. I had my students log into Quizlet so they could see the scores. I would always play the game of few times. The game kept a record of the high scores. I would challenge the students to beat my scores, the scores of the other classes and old record holders. While the student were playing the game, I would go around a look at the individual student scores to see how they were doing. There were usually a few who get pretty competitive. I judged the class on how the class as a whole averaged out.
When I finished the unit in my class, It would be no surprise to find out that I used Quizlet again for 2 purposes. One is I would use Quizlet live as review. The students were fiercely competitive playing this game. Once one group was ahead a few times, I would switch the groups. The student would often use silly names, I would join in quietly from my computer under a false identity and play along.
The second way I would use Quizlet is to help me write the test at the end of the unit. Whenever I would get stuck, I would use the Quizlet test mode to help me construct new questions. I told the students this and I would see them taking the tests on their own.
The following is a Quilt over film terms I created for my class. I broke down this unit over several days because it is a lot of material. I would give the students time at the beginning or the end of class to use the computers. Quizlett
