Assessment Apps

Innovative assessment apps to help educators prep for Common Core tests and provide in-depth student feedback. 

For some educators 2014 equals CCSS tests. Whether you're prepping for next-generation assessments or itching to enhance feedback, these apps will help save the day. A few tips:

Record. From puppet shows to class discussions, pressing rec means easy review.
Don't Do the Math. Letting your tablet generate percentages can save a ton of time.
Play for It. Looking for a great formative assessment tool? Try out a game-based app.
