Class Cards is an easy-to-use yet extremely effective app for boosting student engagement during lessons and discussions. Based on the book I wrote by the same name, this indispensable teaching tool will put your students in the palm of your hand.

After entering the names of your students—or importing a .txt file list of students for each class—the app will display a randomly generated list of students. (See screen shots.)

You’ll see the name of the student to call upon at the top of the list and the names of the next four students to call upon below that. (Knowing who is next enables you to better meet their needs.) There's even a holding area where you can move the name of any student who would like more time to develop a response.

The six score buttons displayed on the screen enable you to easily record the quality of each student's response. (See screen shots.)

Cumulative scores—shown as a percentage—can be checked at any time and can even sorted from high to low so that you'll know who deserves a pat on the back and who needs a bit of encouragement.

Note: A privacy screen allows you to share scores with a student without him seeing the scores of other students.

An added feature is the ability to export scores to the secure ClassCardsApp.com website for viewing or printing. You can also email yourself scores for all classes or a selected class.

    It does what it says if u enter students names but don't use email just enter them manually. It is better than all similar apps like this so don't complicate life. Just use the app and enter the scores Life is good :-)

    In fairness, I later noticed that importing class lists doesn't work but then why didn't installation instructions reflect this? So, following the directions, I tried to upload my class list. Unable, I had my software developer husband try. After a frustrating half hour, he gave up. I managed to manually input my class list,and only realized that bug hadn't been fixed when I came to write this upd

    This app. worked great for a few months, but is no longer working. I am unable to open my classes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled, but no fix.

    Does not work on current OS. I wish I read the comments before purchasing. I have used it before on iOS and it was adequate. But does not work on droid. EDIT: I contacted developer. For what it's worth, he responded and intends to have problem fixed. No ETA. Still wish I knew google gave 15 minutes for a refund...
