When you need to assess informal or formally this is great for fast results. Once you set up subjects you can reuse for years. Great for classroom control in difficult classes. As all students have to participate every kid is on the horse at for every question.
For I class fun questions you can ask the question and then see who got right and wrong for non graded assessments and then peer pressure to hear your neighbor makes it a competition but in nice way.

Use at closure of activity for understanding check. It takes a couple of tries to get out and paste from assessment banks into system. But once in you can reuse and call up in a minute or two for use. I select possible question for use during day or week in advance for 6 classes in under 30 minutes. Then I can use on the fly in class as needed and periodic assessments.

Good for group work. Put a question for discussion in the test bank and then have the students discuss before answering. You can also see who is faking participation that way.

Just wish I could upload whole text banks rather than cut and paste but small price to pay for quality and free program.


Conflicting feelings


I love Plickers. My first graders love Plickers. It’s frustrating, though, that I have so many issues using it. It freezes up in Live View on the board, and waiting wastes so much valuable time. Additionally, way too often, the graphics won’t load on the board. We see the answer choices, but where the graphic should be, there’s only a spinning loading icon. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling the app, but it doesn’t fix the problem. I hope that there’s an update to this issue soon, as I’m fearful I need to find an alternative app, which makes me sad.

Use it almost daily for exit slips!


This is a perfect way to get a quick read on your students' understanding. Data drives my teaching and Plickers is so much easier as I deal with the tech part, and they don't have to log in or anything. The only downside is that my questions from last year that contained images won't load this year online. The questions stored in my library from last year work, but bot the attached images. Other than that- this is great!
