Assess your students in real-time and build an agile classroom, using Top Hat’s classroom assessment software to build your ultimate lecture.
In the past few years, there’s been a spike in technological learning strategies in higher education. Things like online learning, blended learning, elearning, MOOCs, distance learning, online courses and online teaching have become increasingly popular. As instructors move towards newer classroom assessment techniques, the need for a reliable technology platform becomes more important.
That’s where Top Hat Classroom comes in. Our classroom assessment software uses smartphones, laptops, and tablets to facilitate engagement, allowing any educator to create a dynamic classroom environment than can rapidly track student achievement in both types of assessment techniques, formative and summative.
For summative assessment and final exams, Top Hat Test allows you to assess your students in a secure browser that automatically detects cheating. Students can only access the test by inputting a unique code that the instructor auto-generates and shares in class. Accountability is key: proprietary algorithms identify when students are cheating and lock them out of the test automatically, and it’s up to the instructor to decide whether they can be let back in based on browser activity. Top Hat Test is compatible with any student device with no need for any separate downloads.
Pressed for time? Instructors can import free, pre-made interactive tests from the Top Hat Marketplace, a virtual toolkit and library that houses thousands of pieces of educational content. Import multiple interactive question types, use existing questions from your Top Hat course or import free packs to make test creation quick. To make it easy, we offer industry-leading instructional design and curriculum design support from our team of experts, so educators are set up for successful evaluation of student learning, right from day one.
