Who: Teachers looking to incorporate interactive informal formative assessment
How: Teachers are assigned a classroom number after creating an account. Students are then instructed to log in to their specific room on any web connected device.
When: Bell ringer, Exit ticket, or quick check on comprehension
Socrative can be used on any web connected device. There is an app made for the iPads or it can be used through a web browser on laptops.
The teacher creates a quiz/activity from a variety of styles including:
Mutliple Choice – Ask a MC question and display results
True/False – Ask a T/F Question and display results
Short Answer – Open-ended questions, display responses
Start Quiz – Run a quiz made prior to class time
Exit Ticket – Get an end-of-class pulse-check
Space Race – Run a quiz as a game
Each of these options are easy to create, but you will need to budget 10-15 minutes to create quizzes before class time. Quizzes are saved in the system so you can reuse and modify at a later date. You can also create quick one question activities to check on how students are progressing through a lesson.
