Often times we as teachers are want to receive input from students to assess their learning. There are many different ways to accomplish this task, tests, quizzes, projects and presentations to name just a few. However, sometimes I just want to know the opinion of my students on a particular topic or just to a quick comprehension check and do not want to have to create a test or quiz to gauge the classes progress. There are many quiz makers and assessment tools that can be found on the web but one that I found to be simple to use in many different applications was “Urtak“. This site allows you to create quickly and easily simple yes or no questions. It then provides you some simple code that you can cut and paste on any website. I have found that these can be very helpful in assessing student progress and engagement. It can also provide teachers with some simple data to make future decisions for their classes. Since the quizzes are only yes or no questions students are not as intimidated to answer them. These types of questions allows for a good assessment of how the students felt about a topic or lesson at that particular moment. You can find this resource at http://urtak.com
