I'm researching online platforms such as Khan Academy, Quizizz, EdPuzzle, EdConnect, Nearpod, Kahoot, I-Ready, DeltaMath, Edulastic, etc. What are some you have used that are helpful in assessing your students after you have taught a lesson?

HS math teacher from NJ. During the pandemic/hybrid I have made use of Khan, Quizizz, EdPuzzle, Nearpod, and IXL. All of them have their place and uses. EdPuzzles can be good ways to introduce/reinforce the concept and skills. Even if you use a Khan video make it an EdPuzzle and add questions that are answered by the video. Quizizz is a great tool to review before an assessment. Offers great data on engagement and successful completions. I always mandate you do it 1x, and offer repeats for a better score/higher grade. I would add NJCTL and Next Gen Personal Finance for useful resources - depending on what content you teach.

If I assign it, it gets graded, and shocking as it may sound their is a positive and statistically significant correlation between what you do before your assessment and how you do on that assessment.

Boom Cards, DeltaMath, and Quizizz are my go-to apps. They’re all self-grading and give students instant feedback and I get a quick snapshot of progress and mastery.

Gimkit is similar to Quizizz but has different game modes. It was created by HS students, and my kids love to play.

My student teacher used nearpod-the kids likes it. I use the checkpoint quizzes for each section of the textbook that are online to help the kids review

Delta Math (I love that it’s skill specific and nit all over the place like accelerated math and the fact that you set how many they much get correct before they can move on. It also has steps to help them realize their mistakes and DATA DATA DATA!!)
Also Edulastic! I mainly use it for quizzes/test/extra credit/homework checks. I like that I can shuffle items and use the built in anti-cheat options plus it’s time stamped down to how many seconds/minutes per question, submission time, etc. not to mention DATA DATA DATA!

I've used many of those too. I love edulastic for assignments and quizzes. There's immediate feedback, but I was using it also to help train students to go back and fix their mistakes. You can allow them to redo an assignment multiple times and even set a percentage they have to get and it will automatically redirect them to go back and fix their mistakes. They don't always want to do this, but if you train them that understand the mistakes is important it can be very useful.

And we just lay there as I cried, and then got up. Had a drink.

Hello everyone! I’m looking for cool experiments or engaging lesson ideas for junior high health!

Ok. I am teaching music in person and when we have a case of COVID in the school, I push into the classroom for 10 days. Are there music websites that are free that I can go to for quick lessons when I’m asked to teach in the classroom. I was told today with 5 minutes to prepare that we had a case, I couldn’t teach in my room and I couldn’t do the ukulele unit I had planned. I had to think on the fly and quickly came up with a BrainPop for them. I’d like to find a few more music sites.

So many ideas to write about, but as an educator I end up writing with “lessons” in my head - Culture, grammar, words, and it ends up more like non-fiction.
