Great, easy to use app. Smooth integration with Canvas
Extempore is a great speaking assessment tool for teachers to use with students learning a language. We really enjoy using this app and it integrates easily with Canvas assignments. It’s a flexible app that allows instructors to customize the parameters of each speaking assessment. Grading feature is straightforward and grades can be sent to the student gradebook in Canvas as well. On the student-end, it’s very easy to complete an assessment and view the grade and instructor feedback. I highly recommend this app to support language courses.
Where have you been?
Our school started using Extempore this semester as we do away with our language labs. I was hesitant to try yet another app but couldn't be happier that I did! With little to no learning curve I was ready to share my first assessment with students in minutes. Instead of spending more time setting up other apps, I'm finding that I'm saving time using Extempore because of the simplicity to create, share, and grade any type of speaking activity.
The new grading system has made it much easier to give quick, detailed feedback to my students!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
