sent me an AWESOME email later in the day. He had the chance to watch me use my
class set of iPads to do flashbacks using Socrative.
A free program and app, Socrative
allows you to create a ‘classroom’ where assessments will show up and live
score for you!
from any mobile device anywhere in the world.
and short answer questions, or you can use Socrative’s
pre-made quizzes for quick and unplanned formative assessments. When I add an
assessment, I make and save it on Microsoft Word and then, copy/paste it into
their progress on the assessment and what they have scored. If you want, the
app will also tell students if they correctly answered a question.
all students are finished, you get an email with the results. Correct answers
are highlighted in green, incorrect answers in red – this makes it SUPER easy
to follow-up on common misconceptions and provides a record of scores.
and then, pull it up on 5 or so iPads during Reading Workshop time for students
to do a quick ‘Show What I Know’ before they leave.
resource saves. If you have mobile devices in your classroom, I would definitely
encourage you to check Socrative out! Happy day, friends. 🙂
