Socrative is a great tool for collecting immediate feedback from students via mobile apps or the internet on laptops or tablets. With Socrative teachers gather assessments via short answer, multiple choice and/or true or false questions. Socrative auto-grades multiple choice quizzes. All quizzes can be exported to Excel or viewed online in a Google spreadsheet.

Uses:

Besides quizzes, teachers can create:

  • Review Games: Space Race
  • Before a unit test, revisit an existing quiz in a fast-paced game. As students answer questions correctly, their rocket ship advances towards a finish line.
  • Single Question Activities
