What is Plickers?

Plickers lets you poll your class for free, without the need for student devices. Just give each student a card (a "paper clicker"), and use your iPad to scan them to do instant checks-for-understanding, exit tickets, and impromptu polls. Your data is automatically saved, student-by-student, at plickers.com. The teacher asks a question and students simply hold up their card to respond.

What is set-up like?

The teacher creates an account at plickers.com (may use Google account to sign in). The teacher assigns a unique card to each student. Teachers then create questions. The teacher prints and distributes unique cards to each of the students that they can use to respond. We recommend using a low gloss lamination to protect the cards.

What type of data feedback is available?

After scanning the cards the teacher is given immediate data about each student. The data is archived in the teacher’s account. At the end of each session each student’s answers are archived on the teachers Plickers account.
