  1. Quick quizzes form the core of my classroom assessment, because they don’t take up valuable class time, and they are a surprisingly accurate gauge of student comprehension/engagement. Anything below an 8/10 is due to a serious lack of engagement, and I know this immeditately, or it confirms in numbers what I knew from observing the students during class. It is also very quick to grade (less than 5 seconds per quiz if you line up the key correctly (see my vimeo demo: http://vimeo.com/52554005). In my school, pretty much all absences are “excused,” but students are nevertheless concerned by the lack of a score, and when they ask what they can do to “make up” for it, I reply that they now have fewer assessments in which to do well, so each one counts a bit more, and it is important to be fully engaged, and indicate when they don’t understand. Also, I will give them a zero on this if they are making noise, talking, distracting classmates, etc., and I find this to be effective. Quick quizzes have worked well for me for two years now, and I’ll keep doing this on an almost daily basis.

    1. How long do you schedule at the end of class for a 10 question quick quiz?

      Last year I did 5 questions and budgeted around 5 minutes for it. I am thinking of going to 10 this year so they’re a bit more meaty.

      I think I might actually be able to get a 10 question quick quiz done in five minutes. The hard part is getting them focused on it; once that happens, the questions can come fast.

  2. It can go as quickly as 2:37 which is my personal record. Of course, the quiz and pencil passer outers and collectors have to be on their game. You will find that five minutes is plenty of time.

    Of course we want to grade them as quickly as possible as well and, though I use scantrons, we thank John for the link he sent.

    We also received a scantron option from Judy Ramos yesterday for those who don’t have access to scantrons. I will post it along with John’s link as a post.

  3. Does anyone here post audio of the main structure(s) they covered in class so that kids can go listen to it (either for extra practice or for those who are absent). I know it would be a big pain, but maybe a couple of minutes for each class would be doable? ~Robyn
