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.

Kahoot! is a free online resource for creating quizzes, discussions, and surveys. Students log into a classroom and answer the questions that the teacher asks.  Using a multiple choice style question, the students select their response.  Correct answers receive “Kahoots!” and the quicker the student answers, the more “Kahoots!” they receive.  It runs much like the trivia games you see in some restaurants such as BW’s.  The students love to compete with each other and it adds an element of fun to assessing student learning.
