Today I used the Socrative Teacher and Socrative Student apps for assessment. I created a pop quiz with 20 questions to assess the reading they did for homework. One iPad was given to each table of three students. Students worked on the quiz together. They were given instant feedback from the app and a score report was automatically emailed to me after their completion.
We read a chapter from the book together as a class while discussing. Students then read another chapter independently. After reading, each student took a quiz via Socrative’s “Space Race” feature. Again, scores and feedback were automatically emailed to me upon each group’s completion of the quiz.
Scores were then entered into Engrade immediately for parents and students to see.
