ABOUT OTAN TRAINING: Workshop Descriptions

Workshop title Online Formative Assessment Tools 
Workshop description

Formative assessments help students learn what they know and what they need to know. There are many different formative assessment tools available online to assist adult educators and their students to conduct the different assessments in and out of the classroom.

During this hands-on workshop participants will learn how to assess students’ learning before, during and at the end of class as well as sharing assessments with their students. Tips and tricks for getting students to create their own formative assessments will also be presented.

This workshop will explore one or more different tools as requested. The online tools may include (but are not precluded to): Kahoot!, Quizlet, Quizizz, PollEverywhere and exit tickets. A mobile device component may also be included where accessing tools using smart devices will be shown and modeled (dependent upon requestor).
