Assessment & Student Response

In the days of old, it was primarily the teacher’s voice that was heard in the classroom. Today, we acknowledge that the key to an effective and engaging learning environment is that each student has a voice. Promethean’s suite of assessment and student response systems help educators ensure that each student’s voice is heard, mind is engaged and needs are met.

Whether delivered with our ActivEngage2 for tablets, other mobile devices and/or student computers or with hand-held ActivExpression or ActiVote devices, Promethean assessment and student response systems offer educators a simple and effective way to hear from every student, every day.

  • Boost classroom communication and discussion and provide every student the opportunity to confidently participate.
  • Reduce lesson preparation and grading time and focus on precious instructional time. Start a session on the spur of the moment or build it into your lesson.
  • Make assessment an easy, fun and immediately effective part of learning. With instant access to results, address any difficulties right away, ensuring that each learner achieves the lesson objectives.
  • Use the detailed data at your fingertips to intervene where needed, to identify students who are ready for a new challenge and to inform effective collaboration with parents, administrators and fellow teachers.
