This post comes to you from 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Elley. Read on to see how she’s used the app Socrative in her classroom!
Assessing with Socrative…some great discoveries!
I was inspired by recent posts to the Socrative website (garden.socrative.com).

Data analysis of test

- Project teacher screen onto SMARTboard using airserver (this pic is the report you get later; I didn’t think to take a screenshot)

- Give them question #3 on board.
- Used after the unit intro to see what questions they still had.
- Results in real time and printed later.
But I only have 6 iPads……
- Have students give quick answer, submit and then pass the iPad
- Have student teams discuss ideas and then write one down
- Take a sample of the class. Using some one day and then some the next
- Have an alternate activity while some are on the iPad.
- Get keyboards…they type faster that way
- Borrow iPads from another teacher who is not using them 😀
