The teacher formulates a number of questions bases on the intended learning outcome of the course.The teacher can ask various types of questions, e.g. i a multiple-choice format, or ask the students to write a short essay.
The students are informed that they are supposed to take a test.
Google Forms is a tool for making surveys and tests. You can create different types of questions such as multiple choice, text input, dropdown, liniar scale, date, etc., as well as adding content such as text, images and video.
It works in the way that you create a new Google Forms and create the questions you want. You can define whether a question is required or not and provide a correct answer with corresponding feedback.
A very useful feature for eg. self-test is that you can give the students different questions depending on what they answer. So if for example a student answers A, he or she gets question Z and if the student answers B, he or she get's question Y. This gives you a nice opportunity to adapt the questions to the individual student. For example, you can add a video that repeats the subject if the student answers incorrectly on a number of questions.
All answers can be displayed with visual statistics, either for all the answers or for individual answers. You can also create a spreadsheet with all the answers.
Mentimeter is used to create live polls and tests in the classroom. You can ask questions and receive comments from students, who can respond from their computer, smartphone or tablet.
Mentimeter works a bit like a common presentation tool like PowerPoint, but with Mentimeter you can create interactive questions such as multiple choice, 2 by 2 Matrix, quiz, and more. You can also get the students to write a word or message and show it on the screen. The students are sitting with their device and can answer your questions and the results will be shown live on your screen.
Live voting works particularly well with large classes, where it can be difficult to get the students to talk. Once the students have answered a question and seen how the other students have answered, they may be more willing to justify their own answer in plenary.
Mentimeter can also be used to break up your lecture and get the students activated. In addition to helping them stay focused, students get the opportunity to test what they have learned. If you find that students do not understand the topic you have just dealt with, you can address it immediately.
