Socrative is an app in the Chrome store which allows teachers to easily make and set up online practice quizzes. It has four modes the teacher can set up on the go: starting a quiz, asking a quick question or poll, a space race style quiz, and a ticket to leave mini quiz. Students can easily connect to this classroom by simply typing in their teacher’s unique room code, no need for hundreds of accounts for all the students. My favorite part of this app though, is the ability for a teacher to see an overview chart of what each student answered for every question, and the ability to click on the question to see what percentage of students chose each answer. This is the perfect way for teachers to quickly find out what topics students are struggling in and nailing down, allowing them to save time for both themselves and the students by effectively ironing out the common mistakes and skipping the well-known questions. Also Socrative live results also lets the teacher see if all the students have finished their current question so they can move at a steady pace to the next question without constantly asking if everyone is done. Socrative is also compatible with a large variety of computers, tablets, and smartphones, allowing for students to quickly and easily connect to the app right from their desk. All in all, Socrative is a quick, easy to use practice quizzing program that can help teachers quickly analyze their students strengths and weaknesses, so they can prioritize their teaching.
