QUIZIZZ is an excellent, easy and FREE tool to support literacy! It is a website (www.quizizz.com) that allows you to create a quiz for students to take (or choose from ones pre-made by teachers) and emails you the results in a spreadsheet. It auto-corrects the assessment, which is awesome! I can see this as part of a literacy tool during centers or whole-group when reading a story or novel. The possibilities are endless! Let me know if you'd like my support in helping you create an assessment for your next book!
