LDT Online: Socrative

Socrative is a tool that allows you to create formative assessments that immediately measures and visualizes student results. Students respond to Socrative questions (true/false, multiple choice, short answer, and open-response) with a computer, tablet, or phone over the internet. Socrative then provides the teacher with various types of reports on students’ performance. 


  • Socrative as a tool

    Reflect on the various ways that Socrative could be used in the educational, training, or personal learning environments. From your selected perspective, describe two different examples where Socrative could be integrated and used. In both cases, explain why Socrative could positively impact learning.

    Use the open text area to submit your reflective response. As a suggestion, you may want to first compose your response in a word processed document, check for all editing that needs to be completed, save your response so that you can access it later, if needed, and then copy and paste your response in the open text area for this challenge.

    I use socrative as a review game. The students love to play review games after a unit of study. I can also add explanations to help them understand any mistakes they might have made. This also give me feedback as to what I need to address more. I love how I have the ability to pace the review. For whole class review I will usually teacher pace the Quiz.

    You can also use socrative as an assessment piece. If I create a test or quiz on Socrative I usually then create it to be student paced so the learner does not feel rushed. Vocabulary quizzes are usually what I use to give quizzes on Socrative. You can get feedback instantly on a student or class to help guide your future instruction.
