Great App that if used correctly can be a great tool!
I really like this resource as a teaching tool, and definitely think it should be used as an aid for mastery of subjects, and also just quizzes to make sure students are keeping up with material. When used correctly this could be very helpful for student engagement as well!Continue reading

I think Socrative is a helpful website for both teachers and students. It is a user-friendly website that everyone can navigate it easily; it also enables teachers to create their own custom assessments/exams, which can be tailored to specific learning objectives. Moreover, Socrative also provides flexibility and encourages online classes: students don't need physically to be in the classrooms, they can take quizzes/exams/assessments everywhere and anytime as long as it is within the deadline.Continue reading

I think it is a really great tool. It makes learning more fun than a typical quiz and the fact that it provides instant feedback is great for me as I need to know what to plan ahead. I would recommend changing the color of the app as it is a little sad and making it more bright and happy, which will make it more interesting for children.Continue reading

This tool made my life so much easier because I used this as my pre-test and post-test. I was able to directly compare and contrast the data with very little variety in the situation because the questions were presented the EXACT same way, using the same pictures and at the same pace. I was able to upload pictures of the characters from the story easily for questions about character identification. It serves the students well because the technology enhanced the pedagogical information being presented. Throughout the lesson, I presented literary information in a multitude of different ways but the worksheets all corresponded with each other and used similar language and pictures. This assessment allowed me to increase the class's performance because it copied and supported the format that the students were accustomed to while also being manipulated by the teacher. This piece of technology helped augment the entire unit plan because it replaced the need for a paper test. My biggest issue with paper tests is that there is nothing stopping the students from writing all over their paper or filling in answers before they are supposed to start. With Socrative, the students have to move at the teacher's pace and I believe that helps all the students in the classroom because it allows everyone to take time and think about their answer, as opposed to guessing quickly. Overall, I highly suggest the app, even if it is just used for informal assessments because it records all the data, it saves the exams year after year and there are no papers to keep track of. At the very least, it is an amazing time saver. At the most, it allows all the students in the room access to an exam that they can succeed with.Continue reading

Great for Quick Formative Assessment
This is a great product for review and for gathering simple formative data. I like that it's quick and easy to use and accessible to the students (they can use any cellular device or access it on school computers or laptops). It's not really a tool I would use for long assessments or rigorous questioning. But when it comes to quick formative review ... this is my go-to!Continue reading

Great for quick, formative assessment. Might not be suitable for all students.
I loved how there were many different ways to assess students (general quiz, competition, activities, etc). It adds a technological element to certain classroom practices that would have otherwise a) been done with paper handouts and b) not been able to measure each student's understanding as quickly and effectively. As stated above, cannot be sole form of formative assessment, for some students may not be comfortable in this type of environment. In contrast, I loved that it gave some students who do not feel as comfortable speaking up in class an avenue to express themselves.Continue reading

Socrative: Free, easy, and fun
Overall, this is a great application for formative assessments. There are some limitations. First, you cannot assign point to questions. Socrative is binary; the question is either right or wrong. This is useful when deciding how to adjust course curriculum, but I would not use it as a summative assessment tool. It would also not be useful for advanced mathematics since it does not provide an area to show the students work. Socrative is suitable for verbal skills and lower level assessments. I do not see Socrative as a tool to assess intellectual or procedural skills. However, if anyone has used Socrative for these types of assessments, then please provide feedback. As I mentioned above, using Socrative in the classroom saves time and resources. You can also assign teams within Socrative to develop group activities. Where I see Socrative being particularly useful is on field trips. Since it has a very easy to use mobile application, teachers can construct assessments that the students should be able to answer during the field trip experience. For example, while visiting the Marine Corps Museum in Quantico, Virginia last spring, I found myself in a wave of high school students. The students seemed to be guiding themselves through the exhibits. The teacher could have built an assessment ahead of time to ensure that the students were visiting different time-period exhibits in the museum or achieving specific learning objectives. Lastly, this is a very easy tool to use. This is perfect for the technology-hesitant teacher. I am not particularly tech savvy; however, it did not take me very long to master Socrative. In fact, it only took me approximately 15 minutes to figure out how to use it and less than 30 minutes to develop an assessment. This free, easy-to-use tool can be a huge time saver and a fun tool for students.Continue reading

I am currently using this app in one of my college courses and find it very useful! Great form of a formative assessment!
I really like this app and would personally use it in my own classroom. It is quick and easy for both the administrator and students. I think it will engage students because it is on technology and something different from their everyday classroom lives.Continue reading
