About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Formative assessments are best when they’re fast, fun and, above all, give useful insights into student progress. Socrative was created to visualize student learning to best equip teachers with the information they need to find learning gaps.

How does your innovation work in practice?

Socrative offers quizzes, surveys, team activities, and content from educators around the world – all in one easy-to-use assessment tool. Teachers can view answers from every student’s assessment, as they populate on-screen in real-time. These timely results allow teachers to better identifythe needs of their class and close learning gaps. Teachers can then distributeautomated reports to each student, helping them self-reflect and make improvements. In 2018 Socrative was acquired by Showbie, the hybrid learning platform for classroom workflow and personalised feedback. With this change came a strong integration between the apps, making it easy to launch a Socrative quiz from Showbie and share Socrative assessment reports back into Showbie, distribute to students, and use rich annotation tools for precise feedback and reflection to deepen learning.

Socrative also offers unique time-saving features including the ability to share quizzes between teachers, as well as the ability to create Exit Tickets to gather feedback and student understanding on the day’s lesson, so gaps in understanding can be found and addressed as they come up. Lastly, increase student engagement with fun activities that involve the entire class for collaborative learning, using the popular Space Race feature.

How has it been spreading?

Socrative is an extremely popular tool for formative and summative assessment, and is used by millions of educators across the globe. With updates and new features regularly being added to the platform, it has become THE classroom app for gauging student understanding and visualised learning. Socrative also has a team of educators whose role is to constantly support the success of Socrative in schools around the world.

If I want to try it, what should I do?
