Socrative Student Response Tool

Socrative is a great student response system that is extremely easy to set up and use. The beauty of this tool is that it transforms practically any electronic device (iPad, iPhone, laptop) into a “clicker” type tool, allowing instant feedback from students. The whole set up process only takes 2 minutes.  Here’s how it works:

  • Sign in for a free Socrative account.
  • Go to t.socrative.com and register.  You will receive a registration number.
  • Students then visit m.socrative.com, enter the registration number and click join.

Ways to use Socrative in the classroom:

  •  Use it for real-time formative assessment. Ask a question and have students enter their responses via multiple choice, true/false or short answer.
  • Use it as an exit ticket to assess learning at the end of a lesson. Results are emailed to you in a report.
  • Create “space race” games where teams of students have to compete to answer questions .
