Using Technology to Collect Data

Simplify your assessment of group discussions by taking advantage of the technology you have!

During group time, use a cell phone or other audio recording device to keep track of student groups—even when you can’t be present at their table. You can then listen to these recordings after the lesson is over to check for understanding, monitor on-task behaviors, and provide each group with helpful feedback.

Materials or worksheets collected during class can be photographed and stored digitally with a tablet, so students can see their progress over time. Let technology work for you by organizing and collecting the information you need to monitor your students’ progress.

Take a look at these technology-enhanced formative assessments in the video below!
