Socrative is an awesome formative (and summative) assessment tool for teachers. And, most importantly, it’s free and usable on any web-enabled device.
I have used Socrative in class with students and with parents at an open house. In a previous post I wrote about how great Socrative was, but recent updates have made it even better! I really like the preset “Exit Ticket.” Socrative also gives you several ways to get the data out of the app.
It’s an app that is well worth your time to explore.
Let me know what you think. Do you use any other web based tools with your students for formative assessement?
We have been using an app in our Digital Literacy class called Socrative. It’s a simple to use student response system that works with any web enabled device. So, you don’t need an app in order to take advantage of Socrative. You can simply have your students go to Socrative.com on any computer, smartphone or tablet and you are in business. Socrative will also email you a spreadsheet of the responses when you are done with a specific activity. Best of all, it’s completely free to use.
Here is a short overview video that will show you how Socrative works.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
