One Good Thing

A big push from administration in my district is that we include review type questions for our state assessment (Iowa Assessments) in our classrooms. I do this through warms up each morning.

First semester I created review questions based on what students missed on the previous years state assessment. I used our building BrainPop to post the questions that students answered when they arrived in class. After students were done I could see their results right away.

This semester I am using Zeal.com for my warm up questions. I am finding that Zeal.com has questions that corrleate better with the CORE than the questions I made up first semester. I also like that I don’t have to make up questions for each day and this makes my life a little easier.

After students finish their warm up I can hit end exit ticket (I don’t use it as an exit ticket but a warm up) and see student results right away.

If you have time try out Zeal.com its FREE!

    Thanks for sharing Sarah. I’m going to check it out. Is it free as long as you don’t use the tutoring? I was confused because it talked about how inexpensive it was.

      Within the last two weeks Zeal has said that they will not provide exit tickets after this school year. Zeal said that they want to focus on tutoring.

      I am sad to see their exit tickets go away. 😦
