Use free online student response systems, Socrative, Nearpod, and the assessing tools embedded in Google Docs, Sheets, Slides and Forms to assess student work. Socrative allows teachers to engage and assess their students through the use of real time questioning, instant result aggregation and visualization. Teachers can immediately gauge the whole class' current level of understanding or review results later to assess understanding and knowledge about the day's subjects. NearPod gives teachers a simple tool to create presentations and/or download ready-to-use lessons. Teachers monitor classroom activity by controlling students' devices during lessons, get immediate feedback from student responses and track class progress with detailed reports. Nearpod's interactive drawing, multiple choice, true/false or short answer features allow all students to demonstrate knowledge. Google Apps for Education allow students and teachers to create and collaborate using the sharing and voice, and text or suggestion commenting tools, all tools embedded right in Google docs and suitable for assessing student work.
