Carousel: A Dive Into The Evidence (Part 2: Homework)

Part 2: Homework

  1. Simple and clean interface: it takes less than a minute to set a homework on Carousel. You can also duplicate quizzes and just change the questions to save even more time.
  2. Access to content: writing your own question banks will always be better than using Community ones, but thanks to the Carousel Community there is now a huge amount of resources to choose from to match your course (including the premium John Catt Education Knowledge Quizzes).
  3. Device and browser agnostic: Carousel works on all devices and all browsers, so students should be able to access it on anything from anywhere.
  4. No logins: students just use their name, so there are no late night emails asking for their logins or passwords.
  1. Our Whole Class Feedback tool’s “What you found hardest” area displays the questions with the worst scores, and can serve as a lesson starter. Using this shows students how Carousel feeds into classwork, and that you are paying attention to their work and responses and expecting them to improve.
  2. The Whole Class Feedback tool’s “What I found interesting” section, as above, allows you to highlight interesting responses for class discussion, further integrating homework into classwork and in-class culture.
  3. Our upcoming new feature, Whiteboard mode, allows you to use the same questions from Carousel as part of your day-to-day classroom-based retrieval, and shows students that working at home will help them get better in class and vice versa.
