How Does Socrative Fit In Our
Professional Learning Plan?
0 Data Analysis is one of the 2 major areas we are
focusing on in our professional learning plan.
0 Socrative can be used to collect aggregated data and
exported it to an easy to read report in an Excel file or
viewable online as a Google spreadsheet.
0 This can be used to guide instruction.
What Can Socrative
Be Used For?
0 Real Time Formative Assessment
0 You can create a real time formative assessment to take a snapshot of student
thinking. It is very easy- you just choose your question type (multiple choice,
true/false, and/or short answer), ask a question, and wait for responses.
0 Quizzes
0 You can design your own evaluation exercises in minutes by importing questions
or inputting them on their website. Questions can be multiple choice, short answer,
or a combination. If you elect to use multiple choice, they will be graded for you.
0 Exit tickets
0 Use technology to check in on your students' understanding as they head out the
door. Gather responses on their comfort with the material as well as answers to
questions you created.
0 Games
0 Engage your students in fun exercises that track their performance while they're
playing a fast-paced rocket race game. The team(s) answer questions which moves
their rocket. The team that get their rocket the furthest across the screen wins!
* Reminder, If students are using their cell phones,
PDA’s or tablets, they MUST fill out a BYOT Contract

0 You will also receive a detailed report with emailed to
you for review. This data can be used to inform
instruction and evaluate effectiveness.
Interpreting Results
0 Once you have results from your assessment, you can
effectively make informed decisions to improve
teaching and learning.
0 For example, using the data sample from my
International Trade Quiz on handout 4, I can determine
that Question 3 was frequently missed. Why was
question 3 missed? I can look at the question for flaws. If
no flaws exist, I need to reteach the material for a higher
percentage of student mastery.
