How I Use It
I use Socrative for my daily bell work and sometimes for exit ticket work. Once in a while, I will use it for class polling and quizzes. I basically put in a daily prompt, the students enter the classroom within the app and respond to what I call the journal prompt. At end of the day, I pull Excel reports from the website, review all the student responses and give credit. Very easy and no paper involved at all.
My Take
Overall, I think that Socrative is a great product to use in any content area classroom. It is easy to work with as a teacher, and the students do not seem to have any trouble at all using it. Only issues are students accidently exiting before finishing their work and when using it for quizzes, students cannot go back and review their answers before finishing it.
