Teacher Review For Socrative

I use this app as an entrance ticket or exit ticket to quickly assess my students' mathematical knowledge as well as to gauge prior understanding of the content at hand.

How I Use It
I think Socrative is best as an assessment tool. It does not have the best capability to generate new knowledge unless you are really creative with the app. However, all apps cannot meet all needs! I have yet to use my entrance/exit tickets as a formalized assessment, but I think eventually having a student data base would be helpful. Maggie M.
My Take
I have used Socrative to quickly assess students' understanding through entrance/exit tickets. It is so easy to put my room number up on the board for students to enter... My teaching partner and I often share quizzes to make the work flow easier. Students like the quick engagement, and I like how it provides the opportunity for a smooth transition into or out of the day's lesson. Maggie M.
