Abstract

Eliciting students’ responses in formative assessment is very crucial. Eliciting their responses in a traditional way, which is a question and answer style makes the students reluctant to give their responses. Traditionally, teachers rise a question verbally to the students as a practice of formative assessment and they are asked to raise their hand if they want to give a response toward the teachers’ question. This way of delivering formative assessment makes many students hesitate to give their responses because they are afraid of making mistakes. To overcome this case, Mentimeter as one of the online websites of Student Response System (SRS) was believed to relieve the students’ fear of giving responses because this application provides anonymity in eliciting the students’ responses. This study investigated how Mentimeter was implemented and how the students’ perspectives in using Mentimeter for formative assessment. This research employed a qualitative design. The research involved a teacher and twenty-five students of junior high school in Jombang, Indonesia. The data were collected through observation and interview. The results showed that the use of Mentimeter in eliciting the students’ responses in formative assessment helped to overcome the students’ fear of giving responses.
