  1. Regina Royer, Salisbury University, United States

Abstract: Preservice students review nine highly recommended digital tools for formative assessment and report their motivation to use them for instruction, highlighting the affordances and challenges of each. Because of their ease of use, ability to quickly collect and tabulate data, their being offered to teachers at no cost, and lack of a requirement for student accounts and logins, the preservice students responded most favorably to Kahoot, Socrative, and Plickers.
