This isn’t the first time Socrative has been mentioned on this blog, and it probably won’t be the last. Socrative is an emerging tool that is free and simple to use, and makes any classroom an interactive classroom. It’s the perfect way to easily engage your students and keep them involved in the lecture and class material.
To refresh your memory, the way Socrative works is the instructor logs into their account and asks a question to their class. The students then log into their personal accounts from any devices with a web browser, and are able to answer the question.
The reason we are discussing Socrative again today is because they have recently added more features. They have greatly expanded the options available to instructors while creating quizzes including randomizing the order in which students see multiple choice responses, and disabling them from viewing feedback instantly. Another new feature that will greatly increase convenience is the new variety of reporting options available to collect responses (shown to the right). The report can be downloaded to the device you are using or directly emailed to you.
