Socrative is a great EdTech tool that allows teachers to create quizzes and other content for use in the classroom. While there are a lot of options for doing this, Socrative’s Exit Ticket tool is what makes it stand out.
Use Socrative as an Exit Ticket tool to collect formative assessment data to drive your future instruction and reflect on the current day’s lesson. This is a strong way to bring technology into your classroom in ALL subject areas.
Socrative keeps it simple – the Exit Ticket defaults to the following questions:
– Student Name
– How well did you understand today’s lesson (multiple choice)
– What did you learn today (short answer)
– Solve the teacher’s problem (a quick problem you provide)
Answers will be compiled for the teacher to review.
There is a little bit of set-up in order to get this to work but it is VERY EASY. Teachers will download Socrative Teacher App and students will need to download the Socrative Student App from the Chrome Web Store. As with other cloud-based EdTech tools teachers can create a class and then give students the code to join.
If you are even a little interested I would encourage you to watch this video which walks you through the process of creating Exit Tickets using Socrative. As always let us know if we can support you in getting started with this tool. Please let us know if you end up using Socrative in your classroom or if you already use it let us know how it’s going.
