In this post, I look at some of the digital tools that are available to help educators (and coaches alike) to receive formative or summative information from their students (or educators) that help process that information, and provides a space to quickly, yet effectively, review the information to provide timely feedback. If you are interested in learning more about different types of tools, and hearing my personal experience with them, take a moment to review this curated list of tools.

If you find a resource that helps you to create effective assessments, feel free to utilize my post in order to evaluate its efficacy and intentionality.
