Student engagement and formative assessment come together seamlessly with Socrative, a FREE, user-friendly, dynamic response system that receives high accolades from educators.
Since being developed in 2010 Socrative has captured classroom audiences young and old. Students love the ease-of-use and instant feedback they receive as they “show what they know,” while teachers enjoy being able to easily inform their instruction through this cloud based educational technology tool.
Socrative can be used with an entire class, in a small group setting or in a variety of other ways:
An exciting new feature of Socrative allows teachers to include pictures as part of their questioning. This offers the opportunity to ask questions about diagrams, charts, and any other image that is uploaded.
Socrative allows teachers to gather quick baseline data and receive optimized reporting to inform and help differentiate their instruction. Quiz results can be immediately downloaded to Excel, exported to Google Drive, emailed, or run as individualized reports which results in PDF’s being created for each student (similar to a graded “quiz”).
Finally Socrative works with every browser including Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer, and can be accessed from any Web Enabled device, including Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops and Desktops.
