This is a great tool for teachers to use for a quick check on students knowledge.
How to use it
Sign up is quick and easy from http://www.socrative.com/
Follow simple directions to set up quizzes and get a room number.
Children go straight to the website on their device and can join your room via your number.
Children answer the quiz questions.
Why I like it.
There is no messy sign up for children. No need for them to remember passwords and usernames. All they need is your room number which you can provide.
It’s a fun way to ‘test’ the kiddos that is stress free and fun.
It provides live feedback as the children choose their answers.
You can request feedback in the form of an email if you wish. This cuts out the teachers job of having to make a record.
My students were able to find and complete the tests with ease.
It is quick to respond and sign in.
There are multiple functions to try and play with, such as completing quizzes as part of a team.
You can share quizzes with other teachers too.
I can quickly assess where individual children need help.
