GoSoapBox - Polling, Quizzing and Class Barometer
GoSoapBox is a website that offers a few key services for classroom teachers to use to gather information from students. You can use it free with 30 students at a time, but must pay more if you had a larger audience. The key parts, they call them events, include:
There are a bunch of sites that do the first three but the fourth one was most intriguing to me. Basically, students visit the site and and login with a unique code. Once they're in they see whatever events you have set up for them and at the very top they see the Confusion Barometer, which is a switch to toggle between "I get it" and "I don't get it". What shows up on the teacher's screen is the number of students on each side of the equation.
