  1. The boring/obvious answer: use it as formative test (to check whether they’ve got it); simple yes/no answers. You could also use Question Tools for this, but the freeby version is a bit laborious to use. (I only used it once, for a PGCE ‘Produce a resource’ project. It gave my evening class students something to do in the holidays, but I wouldn’t say it revolutionized my teaching!)
