    Verso seeks to deepen student learning by providing the teacher with the ability to use weblinks, Google docs and uploaded content for student access and create open ended questions related to that content.

    Diane Quirk says:
    QuickKey requires students to use paper response sheets while the teacher only needs a mobile device. Response sheets can be quickly scanned using a device's camera providing immediate data to the teacher.

    Not every classroom has access to individual devices for students. That's where Plickers can help. The teacher only needs one mobile/Internet connected device with a camera and printed response sheets for each student. Questions can be multiple choice or true/false.

    Socrative provides a variety of options for designing formative assessments that can be administered online or through the use of mobile apps. Create Multiple Choice quizzes, Quick Questions (great for any time during the lesson), and Exit Tickets. Responses can be viewed live by the teacher or viewed in Reports later on.
