Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Plickers

Description: 

Plickers is a rapid-response polling tool that quickly lets you assess for understanding. You do not need devices for every student and can quickly gather information about students from your phone using coded cards.

What We Like: 
  • No student logins
  • Only one device needed
  • Quick and easy
  • Student responses can be saved as a report
  • Create folders to organize questions
  • Create polls for students and share results
Limitations: 
  • Time required to print cards, create quizzes and scan responses
  • Depending on room layout, students in the front of the room can block the students in the rear
  • Cards are not very durable (use matte laminate if laminating)
Classroom Application: 
Quick formative assessment of student learning
