I would like a feature (and all instructors here) that would detect when a student changes to another browser window during a quiz/test. This would allow us to closer monitor for cheating, since they will look for answers using a variety of sites. I would like this to be an option you can turn on/off since some tests we allow them to click off of test. This should appear as a warning on the overview screen.

Reply from Socrative:Hi Jay. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review of the Socrative app. I appreciate your feedback and the feature request for greater control over student test taking. I'll pass this to our Product team to review as we build develop new features for Socrative. Glad to hear we're generally helping make assessment easier for you! - Dan from Socrative

It is vaery easy to make quizzes manually in Socrative, and I can share them with colleagues, but I will be exploring other options because I need better upload to the LMS at my university, which is changing to D2L Brightspace in the Fall.

Reply from Socrative:Hi there. Thanks for the review of the Socrative app. I'm sorry to hear the app isn't quite meeting the needs of your teaching and learning environment. I appreciate the feedback about the need for more bulk actions when it comes to importing quiz results into your LMS. I can see how that would be frustrating. I'll share this feedback with our product team. - Dan from Socrative
KDenniston found Socrative:
  • Does not significantly reduce teacher workload
    I use Socrative to track attendance because students cannot change their answer after typing into the quiz causing issues when I want to use the quiz for a grade. I upload each quiz result separately into my university's LMS. This takes too much time. It would be better to link directly to the LMS or collate the quiz results into one excel file on Socrative. This would allow me to upload one file instead of 20 at the end of the term. Also, when I used the roster, there was always 1 or 2 students who could not connect to the quiz, and I have stopped using the roster. This wastes more of my time when I try to upload. I am exploring an alternative such as MS Forms to see if I can save time doing this.
  • Slightly improves teaching efficiency
    It takes time from lecture. I wish I could use a test bank to output the questions and upload them directly. Having to use a template is problematic.
  • Does not significantly improve attainment
  • Does not significantly build student knowledge
    It allows more interaction, but it is not reliable for quizzes.

There are some difficulties with it. Specifically in returning student scores and assessments, but most especially an inability to edit quizzes while or after they are being given. Google Forms allows for this and I'll often use that app instead of Socrative for that reason.

Let's compare Socrative to Microsoft Forms. It's better on the one hand, by having room names, however, it would be better to have area codes, or bespoke servers so names can be duplicated for simplicity. e.g. my students have to type in a long room name. Why not have have UK server "UK" and an area number (1 for London). Then rooms can be reused e.g. UK1Yr7a. This is easier to remember than some of the longer winded room names. Socrative also offers storage of data which is great since Forms doesn't do this easily. That said, do I feel I have value for money. Not really.

Reply from Socrative:Hi there, Mr. Morton-Banner! Thank you for the thoughtful reply of Socrative. I've shared this feedback with our team. We really appreciate the careful comparison to Forms, and how we can better tailor the app to support your assessment needs. Glad to hear we've got some features working well for you, and even more glad to hear how we can improve. Thank you! - Dan
Mr Morton-Banner found Socrative:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload

  • Does not significantly improve teaching efficiency
    I can see it would be great for teaching and learning, but I find it too restrictive e.g. I would love some variation by allowing students to post to a board.

some important features missing. Like ability to copy selected questions from one quiz to another ... Scoring would improve massively if points in multiple choice questions would count in %. (e.g. if a question has 4 answers and 2 are correct. If the student picks only 1 correct answer, he/she should get a half point. Answeres that are selected but are wrong should reduce the score of the question.

Socrative could use more review tools beyond the Space Race. Creative games would be fun for the kids while also helping them review the lesson content. One note about the Space Race as it currently works is that it scores based on if the questions were answered correctly by any member when done as a team. I recommend that the Space Race give the option to base their overall score on how many correct answers there were in the team instead.

Reply from Socrative:Hey there, Arrash! Thanks for the review. We really appreciate the feedback about Space Race and the need for more flexibility to support review and practice activities. I'll pass this feedback on to our product team to review as they work to develop the app further. Thanks!

The product is great but the number of tests that you can have on there is limited, for someone that has to cover a broad array of subjects within my specialist area 20 tests for the yearly subscription is a small amount, but similarly the more expensive option is too expensive for the additional benefits. We would benefit from another level of individual membership that allows for unlimited exams but isn't for an enterprise.

Reply from Socrative:Hi Dave! Thanks for the review. It's great to hear how Socrative is helping you save time and engage students more deeply with their assessments.
