I was looking for a way to create online assessments that would be similar to what the students would need to do for our high stakes tests.

Product Use: I use Edcite to create and deliver both formative and summative assessments.

What Worked and What Didn't: Edcite is easy to use and has question types that are similar to most of the types that students will see on their state test. I like the grading interface and the ability to export the scores. Another feature I like is the dashboard which allows me to view the student's progress while they are working.
There are a few question types that are not quite like what the students see on the state test. Also there are occasional glitches. However, Edcite has been very responsive to suggestions, and are very quick to fix any problems as the occur.

I was trying to give my students more practice with questions set up like those on the state test.

Product Use: I typically use it for bell ringers and for assessments.

What Worked and What Didn't: I think it does a fantastic job giving students practice for state testing. It is very easy to set up any type of question they may encounter, even the technology-enhanced questions. I like the fact that you can either use something already set up from the assignments library, or you can make up your own. For the most part, it is very easy for teachers to collect data. However, I really wish it would break down the data into 2 pieces for Part A and Part B type questions. It can be time consuming to have to do it manually.
