Domain 6: Training evaluation
Desktop or portable computer, mobile devices, projector, Internet connection
In this activity you will learn how to gather a feedback from learners at the end of the class, allowing them to demonstrate what they have learned.
It is very important to be able to verify learner understanding during the training to be sure that the teaching objectives are met. A frequent check of the learning level can be used to clarify misconceptions and adjust homework assignments.
- to launch an “exit ticket” survey with 3 questions
- to visualize the learners’ answers in real time
- optionally, to get reports
Socrative is a tool for fun, effective classroom engagement. It allows the educator to instantly connect with learners as learning happens and assess them with prepared activities or on-the-fly questions to get immediate insight into their understanding.
Socrative is available online at https://help.socrative.com/
You can also create an exit ticket using a generic survey tool such as Google Forms (forms.google.com).
This activity allows you to launch a short evaluation session at the end of a class to collect learner feedback, using the pre-defined activity “Exit Ticket”.
In order to be able to use the tool, firstly you have to create a free account as educator at “https://b.socrative.com/login/teacher/#register/info” and secondly to sign in (https://b.socrative.com/login/teacher/).
Once in, launch “Exit Ticket” and adjust settings such as “show names” and “show answers” for the result visualization, if you like.
Ask learners to join your public room by inserting your room code (https://b.socrative.com/login/student/) and then to answer the 3 questions. The first two questions are generic, while the third one, the educator question, is specific on the class topic. For that you have to think in advance about the question you want to ask.
At the end click “finish” and select an option to save or visualize the results.

This activity can be launched at the end of a face-to-face lesson with no previous preparation. The only thing you have to do before is to think about the “educator question” to ask learners.
Before the lesson, to verify that everything works well, it is convenient, to launch the “exit ticket” and simulate the activity with at least two dummy learners joining your room.
To be able to use the Socrative services educators need to get an account or connect with their Google account.
