Socrative – In Class Polling and Quizzes

As much as traditional tests are used to measure student learning, there are times that you want more immediate interactivity and feedback. Socrative is a student response system that allows you to do polls or quizzes in real-time and see feedback instantly.

Socrative is free, and works in any classroom where students have access to computers or their own mobile devices. There’s no complicated signup process for students either, just give them a quiz number and they’re ready to go.
