Build your own online assessments

There are many tools for creating online assessments. These can be used in class for pretests, formative assessments, exit ticket quizzes, traditional quizzes and tests, and more. Using online quizzes in class will help students to become more familiar and comfortable with the process of completing assessments digitally. Based on the tool used, the student may also benefit from automated grading and therefore quicker feedback on their performance.
