I really enjoy that I am able to track students' progress using Quizlet. Quizlet allows both teachers and students to create their own flash cards and flash card sets. Students are then able to practice terms from these study sets in a number of different ways. As a language teacher, Quizlet is a great app that I require all of my students to use on a weekly basis. I am able to track student progress and see which students completed which tasks, which terms students struggled with the most, and much more. Students also have the freedom to create their own study sets, giving them unlimited, free, practice with any important terminology across all subject areas. Finally, teachers are able to purchase Quizlet Pro accounts, which allow educators to create specific classes and control games like Quizlet Live, a fun and interactive review game using computers.
The only thing about Quizlet that I dislike is the fact that when a student begins a certain practice task, I am unable to see just how much of the task the student completed. From my teacher account, I can only see whether a student has not started, started, or completed a task. If a student starts, but doesn't complete a task, I can't see how far s/he got. I can see how much time was spent on the task, but that doesn't necessarily tell me how much s/he accomplished in the time period. Finally, some students think that they have "finished" a task, but when I look on my computer it shows s/he only started. It would be nice if there were a clear "end screen" that confirms a student has completed the task so that there is less confusion.
Educators use Quizlet to help students review important terminology and facts. This has given my students freedom to improve individual skills while still allowing me to see what they are doing and how much success they are having.
