Podcast #40 - Online Assessment Tools - Quia

Hello. Since we are just starting a new school year I thought I would explain what I use in the form of online assessment so that anyone interested could try it out in their classroom as well. I application I use is Quia. I have used it for about 5 years and am very pleased with the service and the continued addition of new tools and options. In this podcast I discuss how I use it to assess existing knowledge before we start a unit and how I use if for my unit tests. A year subscription costs $49 or you can try it out for 30 days for free. It is a great tool that is well worth the investment. Check it out.

If you have any comments or questions please leave a comment on this post or e-mail me at

    I know you don't get a kick-back ;-) but I just paid for my first year's membership. I also had utilized this when it was free - years ago - but forgot what an awesome tool this is! Thanks for reminding me of this tool.

    Glad you checked it out. I'm sure it will work for you as well as it does for me. I love it!

    Hi Eric,

    I am a Spanish teacher, and a big fan of quia. I will share your podcast with other colleagues. You did a fantastic job.


  4. Thanks, Eric. Am a music teacher considering incorporating some online assessments and learning games. Had found Quia and was looking for an unbiased review.
