I have been trying to incorporate technology as much as I can into my teaching. I goggled for an online testing program. I discovered a program called Quizstar 4 Teachers for FREE. This wonderful program allows kids to take tests (multiple choice, true false, and short answer) paperless and on the computer. All that is needed is a computer and the internet.
I can’t tell you how nice it was for my students (and myself) to know their grades the second they hit “submit” on their final exam. They were relived (okay most of them) to get their grades right away.
This new form of test taking will REVOLUTIONIZE the classroom and help teachers focus more time on their students and less time on grading (worst part of the job).
It’s time to put the scan-tron machines away, back away from the pencils, and get into the digital age.
