Description

Socrative is a tool for fun, effective classroom engagement. It allows the teacher to instantly connect with students as learning happens and assess them with prepared activities or on-the-fly questions to get immediate insight into student understanding.

Different activity types are available:

  • design and edit your own library of quizzes specifically for your students. Save them to your Socrative account to use at a later time
  • creating virtual rooms where to launch activities to instantly engage your students, whether they’re in class or learning remotely
  • engaging your students by launching a quiz, a competition, receiving exit tickets, or asking a quick question for instant student feedback
  • visualizing student understanding in real-time as student results populate your screen
  • reporting student understanding at the class or individual student; you can quickly download, email, or transfer reports to Google Drive anytime.

It works on computers, laptops, tablets, and mobile phones.
