How I Use It
I use Socrative to take an anonymous reading of how well the class understands a given topic. I also use it for warm-ups, and to administer the occasional pre-made quiz.
Socrative is a great web tool for teachers to formatively assess their students and gain access to real time data. In addition, you can make a quiz in advance and administer it to your students. Students are able to anonymously answer, or you can ask data questions such as first name and last name, and then export their results to an Excel spreadsheet.
