Using Plickers for Assessment

You will need:

Integrating Plickers into your lesson plan:

  • Use Plickers for polls and formative assessments. It also works well for brief pre- and post-tests.
  • You'll need to create a class and add questions to its queue, but you don't need to assign student names to individual cards.
  • For durable Plickers cards, print on cardstock or use matte laminate. (Pre-laminated cards are available from Amazon.)
    • Don't use shiny laminate - it makes cards difficult to scan.
  • Works especially well for large classes - but be sure to use the large cards for deep lecture halls.
