Have everyone right answers on a paper to questions then throw a numbered beach ball to a student. What ever number their finger lands on is the question they will answer. Pare two students together and give them some questions. One person acts as the tutor and the other as the tutee and they switch places. . Give students response cards with true or false, multiple choice or have them write answers on a white board and then they hold up answers when told to do so.

Don't count such answers as correct, just skip them.
At the beginning of the school year, I have my students write their names on colored popsicle sticks. I use these to randomly draw students' names when having discussions, grading in-class work, etc. When they know I am drawing names, they keep their answers to themselves until I say a name aloud. At other times when I'm not using the sticks, if I have a student who seems to always know and say answers, I just tell the class that "Patrick has met his quota for answering questions today" and that's a cue to him to let other students have a chance.
