  10. 10. Instuctional Use of Technology<br />The i Respond ~ Lite system in connection with the Iteractive White Board can be used in a number of exciting ways. It is designed for the use of both summative and formative assessment. It allows teachers to quickly assess the students understanding by asking real time questions and receive real time feedback.

Some of the types of questions that can be given are true/false, multiple choice, matching, Yes/No, numeric fill in the blank, and survey.<br />
