I really like using the Muddiest Point with my class because it really lets me know what my students need me to review during the next class session. I have added two additional questions to the activity: "Are you current with your homework?" and "Did you prepare for class?" This allows me to gauge the prior understanding of my students and determine how much detail I need to provide when I do the review.

I have made the Muddiest Point an ungraded quiz on Math XL so my students can provide me feedback using the Muddiest Point at any time, particularly at the end of class, or while they are doing their homework.
