Classkick is a free app that students work on and get help instantly from their teacher and peers.
Students work on assignments with their Chromebooks, laptops, or iPads, while getting help from teachers and peers instantly. Teachers create assignments, see all their students’ work in real-time, and give LOTS of student feedback. Best of all, students can help each other anonymously.
Using Classkick, feedback to students increases by 300% and grading time is cut in half.

I love the idea of Classkick. It is easy to use, allows me to quickly and efficiently give feedback and help students, and lets students anonymously help each other. My issue is that the interface is not as friendly. It is not very smooth to write on. You cannot zoom in very much. There is little option for font and color. My students do not like writing in it, so I am looking for an app that does all the same things, but is smoother.
Great for Immediate Formative Feedback
It is essential for users to understand the purpose of this app. NO it is not a note-taking app so if you are looking for a note-taking app for students, then move on to a different app—like Notability.
It IS FANTASTIC at giving students real-time feedback when they are practicing what you taught them.
Use it AFTER you give a lecture or show students how to do a problem. While they are working through, you can monitor their work. You can give hints if you see they are going astray without telling them their answer is wrong. You can highlight pertinent information on the worksheet, that they may have missed.
Also—it has a ‘raise hand’ feature—students raise their hand when they have a question— that allows you to answer student questions in the order that questions were asked. PLUS when you click on their raised hand, it takes you to the place in the assignment where they had a question. You can chat back and forth with students about questions they have or refinements you want to give.
On a multi-page assignments, students tell you when they are ready for you to grade their work. While students are working, I can usually finish more than half the grading of any assignment.
I’m not gonna lie, Classkick could totally get 5 stars if it just had simpler controls. I can’t split screen, which is already an issue if I’m zooming and trying to take notes at the same time. My apple pen is also useless expect when writing. call me superficial, but it’s nice to double tap to switch between tools, especially when trying to get rid of small mistakes. The text box is just god awful, read the other reviews and they’ll easily agree with me. Sometimes, the sever crashes, and you can’t use it at all, which is so frustrating. There isn’t even a costumer service where you can talk/message them and ask what’s up. This app honestly has so much potential, but too many critical things go over its head.
