How I Use It
I use Socrative for assessing to see if students did his/her reading for homework. My class is also at different reading levels, so it makes it easy for the student to complete a quiz when they are ready. I just started using it, but can see many possibilities for multiple ways of assessing students.
Teachers can import quizzes or make their own. When the student takes the quiz is can be student paced or teacher paced. It is time consuming at first, but it works out great when a student has to make up a quiz or a test. Socrative is easy for the student to log in, and the teacher to press begin. The difficult part for me is reading the small print in the excel spreadsheet. While the feedback is immediate, the print is small especially when doing short answer essay.
