Assessment Tools

Don't miss out on digital tools for assessment! This list contains EdTech resources for quizzes, polling, and surveys.




Kahoot offers a competitive-style group assessment that can be used with even very young students. Kahoot's idea is to keep students interacting with peers and the teacher and keep eyes on the screen to a minimum. Teachers can create their own Kahoot quiz or search the database and use a quiz made by another teacher.

Create your own quiz or search the database for existing quizzes from other teachers. Assign Quizizz in class or as homework. This tool implements funny memes to keep students engaged and having fun for the entire assessment.


Quizlet is famous for its digital flashcards, quizzing feature, and flashcard-based games, but the newest feature -- Quizlet Live -- allows students to work as a team to answer questions for an assessment or review. The teacher can create her own quiz or search the database and use one that was previously created by other teachers.


PollSnack is an easy to use online poll & survey software that allows you to create and publish market questionnaires and then view the answers in real time.

Great for exit tickets or short questions! Answer Garden is a one-page website where users can submit a short (character-limited) response. The more times that response is entered, the more that particular answer grows in the "garden." It's a great way to quickly assess students.

They've recently limited some of the free features in an effort to generate more revenue, but I still love Poll Everyone's option for image-based polling -- it's especially handy in the early childhood classroom!

Straw Poll

Straw Poll is the best place to create instant, real-time polls for free.

Perfect for the 1 device classroom, Plickers utilizes a special answer code for each student that the teacher can print one time and reuse for the entire year. Works with 1 iOS or Android device.

Teachers assign a question (or questions) to students. Students can log in via e-mail address or class PIN, which makes this tool ideal for young learners. Students answer the question(s) in video format, and the teacher can respond if needed.
