Take a Plick-ture by @Mroberts90Matt

Having considered and reflected on self-assessment in the past, it became apparent that the practice could be informative as long as it was straight-forward, quick and easy to refer to. I was made aware of a website and app at Plickers.com which allows you to print a unique code for each child in just a few minutes, which can be stuck into the front cover of a child’s book and used by pupils to answer multiple choice questions which are collated instantly using a smart phone’s camera. This is completely free and allowed me to utilise a quick, effortless method to gather student’s instant feedback on a topic. Feedback which could then be acted upon there and then, eradicating any misconceptions that could embed themselves whilst I take time to mark their learning.
