While most schools impose a strict restriction on students using cell phones on the premises, a high school in Iowa is using them as an integral part of the students’ practice tests. The science class of The North Scott High School allows students to text their answers to multiple choice questions using a site called PollEverywhere, which enables teachers to understand which topics are proving to be challenging to students, so they can focus on those. Those students who don’t have mobile phones use school laptops to submit their answers. To prevent the abuse of cell phones, the school has also laid strict rules on using cell phones only for practice tests.
