Plickers is a free app which uses QR codes -63 different versions – to allow students to answer multiple choice questions without the student beside them knowing the response. Students turn their card to have the letter of their chosen response uppermost.
Then the teacher scans the room using the app on their phone (android or iPhone) or iPad and the responses are collected. I have made answer B correct to demonstrate how quickly the teacher can recognise how many students are giving the correct response. The numbers above each response indicate how many students are giving that response and the names are the names of the two students I entered for the test situation.
It is possible to assign specific cards to individual students, via the app or on the website. It would be possible to give a student their own card to keep in the front of their book or to carry a class set.
I have created a set of 5 Demo questions which can be used on any occasion without having previously created specific questions.
It is possible to create a number of classes to align with the classes being taught.
A very versatile app and totally free.
