Integrated with SMART Notebook software

Mobile device-enabled

Respond to assessments using Internet-enabled devices, such as computers, iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad mobile digital devices, and smartphones on the Android mobile technology platform or with Blackberry OS 6.0 or 7.0. Students access the browser-based product on their devices and enter an assessment ID to receive and answer assessment questions. Compatible Internet browsers include Internet Explorer, Mozilla FireFox, Google Chrome and Safari.

Questions integrated into lessons

Create questions for formative and summative assessment, prepare quizzes or exams in advance and ask spontaneous questions to gauge students’ comprehension at any point during a lesson.

Display results immediately

Display question results in easy-to-view pie charts or graphs, which you can then drag into a SMART Notebook software page for a closer view and add your own notes in digital ink. You can also view assessment progress before all students have answered, and view results in detail, so you can see exactly how each student has answered.

Question variety

Ask different types of questions using six question types – true or false, yes or no, multiple choice, multiple answer, numeric and text response.

Anonymous mode

Allow students to respond with complete confidentiality.

Comprehensive gradebook

Use the built-in Teacher Tools gradebook to generate up to 18 student and class performance reports that are automatically collected and saved in one location. The gradebook automatically collects answers and grades, stores results and displays student and class history and trends alongside assessment, educational standards and cognitive levels. Teachers can also generate PDF reports or export results to Microsoft Excel.

Classroom management

Use the built-in Teacher Tools gradebook to create class lists or import existing class lists to track student performance and record test results. In addition, you can set up, conduct and manage tests and quizzes, then monitor each student's progress during a test and instantly view results.

Mixed mode

Enables the use of SMART Response LE, SMART Response PE (formerly Senteo), SMART Response XE and SMART Response VE interactive response systems – in the same assessment.

Intuitive on-screen links

Proceed easily through tasks step by step, guided by clear links and simple prompts. With a single click, you can create questions, start and stop a quiz or view results.

Privacy setting

Use the privacy mode in the system’s built-in gradebook to ensure sensitive student identification details and test scores aren’t seen by other students or teachers.

Self-paced delivery

With access to questions directly on their mobile devices, students can work at their own pace without the need for paper copies or common displays.

Answer key

Quickly and easily create answer keys for self-paced assessments.

Weighted marking

Assign different point values to individual questions within a test or quiz, or adjust student scores in the built-in Teacher Tools gradebook.

Export assessment results

Export results in Microsoft Excel format (.xls) or text format (.csv). Customize text files by choosing the fields required for the report, including question-level data.

Import existing questions

Visit the SMART Exchange website to access free question sets that are correlated to curriculum standards. SMART Response VE is also compatible with other commonly used file formats, so you can import questions from other applications, including Microsoft PowerPoint, Word and Excel, PDFs (Mac only) and third-party question banks.

Content pages

Measure student comprehension during any lesson by inserting questions between content pages in SMART Notebook software.

Multiple print options

Print quizzes as handouts so students can complete them at their own pace, or add comments to completed tests that can be printed and used later as study guides.

No installation required

No software installation is required on students' devices, so students can respond to planned or spontaneous assessments during lessons using any Internet-enabled device.

Proxy Server Support
