About
This is a free and quick immediate feedback tool you can use with students. This tool can be used with any device that has a web browser. (desktop computer, netbook, laptop, iPod, iPad or smartphone)

Signing Up
To sign up go to Socrative and click on Sign Up in the top right hand corner. To sign up, a teacher must provide their email, password, name, role at school, what they teach and where they teach. You are given a classroom number that your students will need to type in on their student screen to access your questions. (This number never changes.) A teacher can have 50 students in their classroom at one time.

Using
To use teachers go to t.socrative.com
Direct your students to m.socrative.com

Once you log in on the teacher page and students have entered your classroom number on their student page you can begin. Teachers will see a dashboard like below. From the dashboard they can choose the type of question or quiz they want to send to the students.
