Many of us also use Eduphoria Aware for administering assessments, be they for our own information as a teacher, or as common assessments at the campus or district level. Eduphoria Aware gives us the ability to disaggregate and break down an enormous amount of data into manageable chunks that can inform and improve our teaching. Often times, to get this data in the system, we end up standing in line at a bubble sheet scanner. There is a better way!
Many of us use SMART Response to conduct assessments. With SMART Response's seamless integration into SMART Notebook, for use on a SMART interactive whiteboard, teachers can embed questions and have them show up at just the right time during the delivery of a lesson, so instead of just asking "who didn't get it," teachers can actually look at the data, either right there during the lesson to determine if immediate reteaching is necessary on a whole class level, or on an individual student level, to set up small groups targeting specific standards or skills for improved differentiation. In this respect, SMART Response is great for formative assessment. But SMART Response can also be used for summative assessments, where students take self-paced assessments, often for a grade. SMART Response gives users the ability to look at the data from any assessment taken in SMART Response, and with recent improvements, teachers can even attach state standards to those questions. Pretty awesome! Some teachers, however, want even capabilities in terms of disaggregating data, or they want the ability to compare those assessments they take on a class level with assessments taken at the campus or district level. There is a way!
Teachers, you can easily to use these two great tools together. You'll need the SMART Response for Eduphoria Connector and SMART Response installed, and you'll need a set of SMART Response clickers (or the online version in beta, SMART Response VE).
