Socrative was designed by a team of engineers, educators and entrepreneurs that are passionate about improving education through the use of instructional technology. Socrative is a student response system where students use their own devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, Ipods/Ipads or any device with a browser to engage in assessment activities created by their teachers.

Indicative use in the classroom

Can be used for formative or summative assessment and allow the teacher to assess understanding with multiple choice, true/false, and short answer. There is even an “exit ticket” for educators to assess understanding as students head out the door. Space Race is another feature that allows teachers to track student performance as they answer questions and compete by trying to get their team’s rocket the farthest across the screen by answering questions correctly.

Open access
