In my TTH hybrid class, students complete assignments every MWF. Some assignments include grammar video tutorials and questions based on the videos.
In-class group work and HW scores told me students had mastered the use of double object pronouns. However, students performed poorly (79.8% average) on the timed chapter exam (50 seconds per question).
Although before class I review the group’s scores, this does not tell me if students can recall, identify, and use the grammatical structures correctly while under pressure, or in under 40 seconds. (In a real-life situation, you can’t pause for over 40 seconds every time you need to find the right word/ grammatical structure.)
To address this, I started using Kahoot! and using the reports to adapt the lesson plan as needed.
Kahoot! is a game-based classroom response system.
After this intervention and the corresponding modifications to my lesson plans, the group’s average score went from 79.8% to 84.5%.
