eLearningMeet: Using Socrative to take a student exit poll

Julian Hargreaves from the Academic Enhancement Department spoke about his experiences of using the free poll tool Socrative. Julian explained that this could be used at the end of class to investigate how helpful something was, what students have learned and what they would like to revisit.

Staff can create a teacher login, then set up single question activities such as MCQs or gather more qualitative  data. Questions can be timed or made student-paced. Socrative generates a room number and students use this room number to log in and take the poll. Students are able to use mobile devices to respond. Results are instantaneous and questions and results can be displayed.

Apps are also available for iPhones and Android.
