How I Use It
I use it to assess understanding of research concepts and skills by assigning quizzes for students to complete in pairs or individually. I also use the open answer questions for discussion on digital citizenship as part of the Common Sense Media curriculum. Activities may be shared if one is using it as a team.
Socrative is a great resource for formative assessment. Activities may be student or teacher paced. Results may be projected on a screen and/or emailed as a report. This is a great tool for whole class, small group, and individual activities. Students LOVE the immediate feedback feature which positively reinforces correct answers and builds kiddos' confidence. The space race is a fun activity if competition is something that works for your kids. Did I mention it is free?
