Taking a Test can be Fun!
During the month of March the Third Grade students study the properties of matter. As they were nearing the completion of this science unit I created an assessment using the app Socrative. This app allows teachers to create a quiz online in socrative teacher. This may be done on either an iPad or a computer. The set up was very easy.
On the big day each student had an iPad and signed into the quiz with a code I gave them for this test. It was a fun way to assess students and it was a fun way to take a test. The program scores the multiple choice test as the students are working and the teacher receives an excel spread sheet with the results. Everyone did a great job and had fun.

The final part of the test was a written open response question. It was fun seeing students work so hard. One student used the experiment we did together as his open response answer.
