Socrative is a free student response system. Teachers can set up quizzes or team quiz "races" and students can submit responses instantly on their phones or computers. Results can be displayed named or anonymously and may also be published as Google spreadsheets. It is free for a class with up to 50 students.

Evaluation: Socrative is a product that gives teachers the ability to ask questions and get feedback from each student almost immediately. Questions such as T/F, multiple choice and others give teachers an opportunity to quickly assess progress during a lesson and check for understanding at the end of the lesson. The product is cloudbased and free, which means students can access it using any device. The company provides a database of existing quizzes and questions and a venue where teachers can share created resources in their "garden" of homemade quizzes. Results of the teacher's query can be displayed live in the classroom to facilitate student discussion. Results can also be displayed in an Excel file.

Cost: Free with registration + Paid premium plans
