Plickers Student Response App



Comparing Classrooms

I love Plickers because it's an easy way to pre-assess your students before you begin a unit to see what they already know, assess while you're teaching a unit, or at the end of the unit as a formal assessment. 


You only need one device for the teacher and students need cards. The teacher just scans the student cards as they display their answers. Each side of the card is labeled with a letter. Students show the letter with the correct answer at the top.

Teachers just go to the Plickers website to register their class and download the app on their iPhone or iPad. Make copies of the cards on cardstock so they're sturdy. I would not suggest laminating because of the glare. I wouldn't recommend this for a formal assessment because students can easily see what cards are being held.

  1. Wow!

    I love how incredibly fast you have information about how your class is understanding a specific topic. I also love that it's paperless. Quick feedback without having to take papers home to grade. Plus you can redirect confusion on the spot; rather than the next day, or whenever papers might get graded. Thanks for the tip.
