iPads for Assessment

For the past two terms I’ve been using ShowMe and ExplainEverything as an assessment tool in Maths.

Pupils take an iPad and work to produce a short presentation that teaches a specific Maths skill.

At first they were really self conscious about making them but now it’s becoming part of our normal classroom routine.

The finished products serve three purposes.

First, they provide a really good overview of whether a pupil has understood a concept.

Secondly, some of the presentations can be used as a teaching tool for other pupils.

Thirdly, we sometimes listen to and watch presentation and then give feedback on things that were done really well and areas for improvement.
