Resource Introduction: Socrative

Want to manage digital assessments? Try Socrative!

What is it?

Socrative is a free online tool designed specifically for classroom assessments. Unlike Google Forms, which was originally designed as a general tool, Socrative was designed specifically for classroom assessments. It offers a wide range of assessment functions, including question customization, automated grading, live views, grade reports, and more. It works on any devices, so students could even complete assessments on smartphones.

How can I use it?

Use Socrative to create and administer tests, quizzes, or other types of formative assessment. You can use it for large, summative assessments or small, formative ones. You can also use it to connect to other educators to share content.
