This is a great way to pick students randomly.
You can select the number of students you have in your class and then type out each name. When you click “Select,” the computer clicks through several names with a cool sound effect and then it selects just one.
One of the best features of this program is that once a name has been selected, it won’t be selected again if you click “No Repeat.”
This way, if you save this file at the end of every day, you can make sure to have called on every student in your class before moving on to something else.
