Workshop Description
Assessment is a key aspect of effective instruction, perhaps even more so in the context of distance learning. In this workshop we will explore several engaging tools for assessing students online.

In the first session, the focus will be on Google Forms – popular and useful for all educators -- and Quizizz, a platform for "gamified" guizzes and lessons.

In the second session, you will try out Nearpod and Padlet, which enable you to teach and assess students in innovative ways.

You will have the opportunity to share ideas with other participants and receive feedback on assessments you create.

    Participants will
    Create assessments using Google Forms, Quizizz, and other online tools;
    Analyze assessment data by accessing reports generated by these tools;
    Provide feedback on assessments using email, WhatsApp, and other methods.

    Participants are expected to commit to both sessions.

    Andrew Shapira has been an adult ESOL teacher for 11 years. He has led many workshops on educational technology tools, including "Doing More with Google" and "Doing More with YouTube" at First Literacy. 

    This workshop is free to staff of all Massachusetts non-profit ABE and ESOL Programs.
