A Revolution in Education
We just installed Response systems in all of our 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms. Our main focus is using them for immediate feedback/formative assessments however, the teachers would like to use the Response system for mandatory interim assessments. These assessments come to the teachers in .pdf format that they have simply printed in the past. What do we do to set up assessments with the .pdf's without having to re-build anything? I am drawing a total blank. It must be time for Thanksgiving Holiday! Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
What I do with Word docs or pdf's is use the capture tool to outline the parts I want and paste onto the Notebook page. Then all you have to do is create the question with no text and enter the answers for the questions. I hope this helps you.
I have tried this and I am not sure if I am doing this correctly. I capture the question from Word and it automatically goes onto a page in the Notebook software. Then I click on "response" in that software and select a new question. I leave the question box clear and hit next to go to the answer choices. I type those in. Then I click finish. When that happens, the question appears on one slide and the answer choices appear on another. I can only start the question from slide with the answer choices on it. Is this what is supposed to happen?
Yes, what you have to do is paste the questions onto the page with the question/answers after you've created the question. Each question gets created on a new page. It's just a matter of pasting onto the correct page so if you want, for instance, questions on a content page you have to create the questions and then paste the content onto that question page. . I hope this helps.
Mitch's reply works great if you want to advance one slide at a time with the students. However, if the students are taking them independently at their desks with the paper in front of them, then you need to watch this video to see how to make the required notebook file and enter the correct answers in minutes.
