I have sample questions provided underneath this template
Right/Wrong Answers: Will there be right/wrong answers to these questions?
Mixed (Some will have correct answers, others will not.)

Yes

No

Immediate corrective feedback:


Will you pre-select correct answers to some or all of the questions and display correct response to the class
after the SRS activity?
Yes
No
Why or why not? I want to see the responses individual first. I also do not want to give an opportunity for
students to know whether their classmate got the correct answer or not.
Use of data: The data collected from the activity will used as a test grade for each student. It will also show
me which students may need extra help with the content.

Describe what will occur after the SRS activity: The teacher will review and record the data. Students
will move onto a different activity depending on when we do the SRS activity
Describe your personal learning goal for this activity. I am hoping I will learn that using the SRS system
is much easier that hand grading. I also hope the students enjoy using it rather than paper and pencil.
