In this study, we found that teachers use Microsoft Forms not only for formative assessment, but for many other pedagogical activities. Teachers value the ease of use and clear reporting of Microsoft Forms.

  1. Great article by Hermant Kogekar. Hermant is the principal of Kogekar Consulting.
    Article ran in CIO Summer 2011/2012 and was titled GOING UP?
    A nice refresher on delivering a ‘well articulated message’ covering basic questions:
    – describe your problem or solution
    – define our solution
    – describe the implementation plan and risks
    – what is required and is funding available
    – describe the support needed to ensure success
    – consolidate practice and deliver

    Keep the pitch concise and conversational.

  2. I generally don’t leave feedback, but your article is so good I had to. It actually provided me with a wonderful idea for my blog (same niche market as this one; a sub niche really). I’m going to
    give you a link to it as soon as I am finished, if you want
    of course.
