Convenient and easy to use for test review or informal assessment.
I use Socrative a lot in my classroom because the students can use any device to log on: phones, iPods, classroom computers or iPads, and we don't have a class set of anything. I can type questions into a quiz in about five minutes, and it gives me feedback when the quiz is over. It has a Space Race game that my students love.
How I Use It
I use the Space Race game in small groups as a review for tests. I also have individual students take short quizzes at the beginning of class in order to determine if I need to review concepts from the previous day. One of my students created his own quiz as an extra credit project and we turned it into a Space Race game.
