Edmodo Snapshot - Quickly Create Common Core-aligned Assessments

If you use Edmodo and you have to align your assessments to Common Core standards, Edmodo's new Snapshot tool is for you. Snapshot is a new tool that allows you to quickly create quizzes aligned to Common Core standards.

To create a quiz with Snapshot simply select the Snapshot in your Edmodo account, choose a student group, choose a grade, and choose ELA or Math. By default Snapshot will generate a twelve question quiz to get you started. You can add questions to it by select a specific standard and clicking the "+" symbol next to one of the questions in the question bank. When your students take the Snapshot quiz the results are shown to you in real-time. Learn more about Snapshot in the demonstration video made by Matt Bergman and embedded below.


Applications for Education
Giving students a Snapshot quiz then watching the real-time results could be a good pre-teaching activity useful in determining how to modify your lesson plans.
