Socrative is a cloud-based student response system developed in 2010 by Boston-based graduate school students. This tool allows teachers to create simple quizzes that students can take quickly on laptops, tablets, or smartphones. It is a full-featured application that offers an easy and friendly experience to teachers to engage and assess their students; Socrative can be used on Android and iOS devices. Through the use of real time questioning, instant result aggregation and visualization, teachers can gauge the whole class’ current level of understanding.
We will be using this tool for reviews and to take some of our tests and quizzes. This will help us prepare for the PARCC (the computer-based test in March).
