- Here is a short video to introduce you to InkSurvey, a powerful pedagogical tool designed to use technology to facilitate formative assessment.
Hardware and Software Requirements:
Each student or team of students needs a pen-enabled mobile device with internet access. This includes Tablet PCs, iPads,and Android devices(4.0 and higher)such as tablets, smart phones, and slates. If your touch screen equipment doesn't have "pens," you can purchase a stylus for around a dollar (US) online.
There is no need to load anything locally on student hardware, since InkSurvey is web-based. Web browsers which support InkSurvey are:
Mozilla FireFox Chrome Safari
Computers with these browsers will run InkSurvey and are useful for the teacher to process student responses. Student responses will be received more quickly if the teacher's computer has a hard-wire connection.
InkSurvey can also be used to collect keyboard input responses from students.
This series of short videos is designed to help you learn the mechanics of using InkSurvey. Each is accompanied by a short text summary for quick reference.
