Socrative App Review

The following is an App review from one of our Purdue College of Education faculty members:



“Socrative is a smart student response system (‘clicker’) that empowers teachers to engage their classrooms through a series of educational exercises and games via smartphones, laptops, and tablets. Students ‘BYOD’ (bring their own device) to use as the ‘clicker’. Teachers login through their device and select an activity which controls the flow of questions and games. Students simply login with their device and interact in real time with the content: quizzes, short answer, polls, T/F, review games, etc. Student responses are visually represented for multiple choice, true/false and short answer questions. For pre-planned activities a teacher can view reports online as a Google spreadsheet or as an emailed Excel file. I use Socrative as a formative/comprehension in ECON 21900 and as a review game.”
