Piedmont is known for being active, interactive and project-based. Still, even the most alternative of us tend to use multiple choice sometimes. But don't waste all your creative teacher brain power on grading drudgery. If your plans include a bubble sheet, you can now grade them from your phone with the QuickKey app. I am just exploring it but from the very efficient early adopter Ms. Peterson and I can figure, you have to imput the student names and create classes one time and then you are good. You download their bubble sheet here (save $ from those expensive scantrons!) and then get the app in the app store (for iphone but works on ipad) http://www.quickkeyapp.com/pages/support
