RandoMeister lets you randomly pick student names (or Dolch sight words or math facts or text from really any kind of list you construct) using several different methods. It also lets you create random (but editable) groups based on either the number of groups you want or the number of students you want in each group. You may even set up restrictions (behind the scenes) if there are students that you do not want ending up together in the same group. You may also save these groups for reuse and export them. Rotate to landscape in order to display names at their largest size. Create multiple classes. Get notified when everyone in your class has been drawn or view the class list to see pick-statistics for each student.

My Favorite

I started using this app 7 years ago and still use RandoMeister pretty much every day in my second grade classroom to pick individuals and to quickly create partners or small groups.

Classroom Essential

We so frequently use this app to create groups that the kids now expect and prefer it. I teach several different classes and RandoMeister accommodates that well.

Loving Randomeister!

I have been an avid user of Randomeister since its inception. Support is fantastic and it works great with iOS8.
Maybe the other users that have had problems should contact the developer.
I know he responds quickly, and has in no way left the country. He is just down the hall from me teaching 3rd grade :)
It has saved me countless times when I needed to group my students quickly.
Thank you Scott for such a useful app.
