Description

Socrative brings smart clickers, student response and ease of use to a whole new level. Engage the entire classroom with educational exercises and games while capturing student results in real-time. Interact with the data to further student understanding in the moment, and review the reports to prepare for future classes. Socrative will even aggregate and grade your pre-made activities! Saving you time, so you can engage more with your students on an individual level. Create a library of activities and share them with your colleagues and learning community. Not a 1:1 school? That's okay! Have students bring their own devices and join in the learning!

Most Popular Activities:

  • Short Answer Questions: Ask an open-ended question. Students respond and all their answers populate your screen for projection. Then ask students to vote on their favorite and watch the results come in.
  • Quick Quiz: A teacher paced or student paced activity with multiple choice and/or short answer questions. Results can be viewed question by question and exported to a report that is automatically aggregated and graded.
  • Create a Quiz: Design your own Quick Quizzes with our built in feature or import them with our Excel template. Share with your community!
  • Space Race: Teams of students answer multiple choice questions in this fast-paced rocket race game. First team to get their rocket across the screen wins! You'll get a graded report!
  • Exit Tickets: Get a quick, paper-free pulse-check at the end of class. All answers are aggregated into a report!
  • Multiple Choice: Ask a MC question, and see student responses on the projection screen as a bar chart.

My college students like getting Socrative Space Races as a way of measuring what they've learned after listening to 90-minute podcasts.

Great for quick re-cap quizzes for students. Puts fun into assessment. Great that you teacher and student get feedback on student errors. Very simple to use.

Wow. I just took a tour of this tool - I am going to promote it with my teachers next year and specifically target my 8th grade science teacher who is in the process of moving her curriculum over to the iPad. This looks great!

More to come...

A great and simple tool that allows for instant student input. No fumbling around with individual student accounts and passwords. Just provide a "room number" to a group and they are all in, using an Android or iOS device or a desktop/laptop computer.

The shiny:

+ simple/kid-friendly interface

+ create multiple choice quizzes that can be used as interactive games

+ automatically create random teams

+ EXCELLENT for exit cards - students can summarize what they have learned in a lesson and answer a question provided by the teacher

+ reports e-mailed to you (as a spreadsheet) that is easily opened by Excel or imported into Google Docs

The dull:

- multiple choice quizzes can take time to create

- question and game formats can be a little restrictive

- not too much customization

The final word:

Definitely worth a shot. Head to t.socrative.com to create a teacher account, get a room number and play around. There are a few good video tutorials on Youtube as well
