How I Use It
I use Socrative on my iPhone or iPad to create the assessments and to send them. I also send the results to my email. My purpose this year is to use it for formative assessment and data collection. I use images with a writing prompt for short constructed responses. Or I show a video and have students respond. It is convenient to have all of the answers in a single spread sheet. It is easier to see areas of confusion as well as what areas are strengths.
Quick and easy to use. Questions can be challenging and use higher order thinking skills or can be simple and check for understanding. It is the teacher's choice. My school has a large ELL population and includes refugee students, and they all participate.
