How I Use It
My favorite part of Socrative is the open response, and the voting phase that follows. I like this because all student are held accountable for an answer, but students can also pick the answer they think is the best answer. It can also be used for spelling tests, vocabulary sentences, math problems, and the list goes on and on. The only part I don't like is the quick question for multiple choice because you can put in the answer.
Overall, this is a great tool. What price can be better than free. I can quickly assess all my students at once, and look for trends or rough spots. I can manipulate the data with excel. This lightens my grading and make checking for understanding easier.
