Problem-AtticBiology - Bio writing team showed this tool during their lesson showcaseA site that houses standards-based questions and teaching/learning tools for Math, Science, Social Studies and English. Great resource for finding assessment or review questions. Questions and materials come from various state and national assessments - good practice for online assessment. Search by topic or exam. Select, arrange, and format questions the way you want them. The free account allows you to print the quiz. If you use the 'Play Area' feature you can export questions and embed into an LMS. Note that the Play Area allows you to create a single quiz or worksheet. You can type over this same item, to keep changing it as the year moves on, but this means that you can only save one online version. The paid version allows you to create unlimited materials.

Negative: Math questions for CCSS requires a school subscription, but they do have Ohio state test math questions.

Collaborative gDocs/Draw/SSs/SlidesAllBEST tools for collaboration if your district is a G-Suite for Education district! Devise ways to use ONE file for the class to collaborate, share, discuss, etc. Be sure to organize the space for students to use so they are not writing/adding on top of each other. May want to have students create the slide, paragraph, image, etc in their OWN google file, THEN copy/paste it into the collaborative file with no changes (since "Undo" will undo the last thing, which may be something someone else did).
