Version 2 Google Play App Demo Link


This app allows the teacher to enter up to 20 different class lists of up to 99 students per class. The teacher can then tap on the random button to select a student from the list randomly. It also allows allows the teacher to create groups of students from sizes 2 - 6.

Features:
-Record student absent so their names are not called.
-Keep track of number of times that student is called on
-Keep track of correct and incorrect responses
-Call student at random and have device speak name out aloud
-Generate random student groups of 2-6 students and then select a student randomly in each group if needed.
-Customize groups individually by moving students who cannot work together
-Backup/Import data from Dropbox

I have found that students enjoy the Speak Aloud feature in my classroom and participation is more equitable and students really do participate more. Perhaps users will find another setting where this app may be useful

Very useful I use this all the time while teaching university classes to help keep the class engaged. My only suggestion would be to clarify the instructions for CSV import. The file-naming conventions expected are not documented; I had to work them out by trial & error.

Works well I bought this but developer would rather make a new version for a new price than support existing software.

Improved! The updates have seriously improved the app. Uploading the data is still a bit... off, i guess. But I love this app, once you get the info in. I give my students a quiz grade every marking period based on their percentages in this app. I also wish it were available on apple...

Very useful I use this all the time while teaching university classes to help keep the class engaged. My only suggestion would be to clarify the instructions for CAVE import. The file-naming conventions expected are not documented; I had to work them out by trial & error.

Andy Persanyi I would like to think I am fairly savvy with comma separated values, but this app makes it exceeding frustrating to import an existing csv file. Tried renaming my upload csv files as per the instructions/warning that pops up but to no avail. Created a root directory with name suggested and it still didn't work. I know I can enter student names individually, but let's try and make use of this fancy thing we call technology. I wouldn't mind if this was the DEMO version, but I paid $3 to discover the same frustration. I agree with Kristoffer--not intuitive at all. I am looking forward to the crashing, though, mentioned by Sue Yuill and Andre Desjardins.
