What is Socrative?

How many students can you have in a room?

With the free version of Socrative and Socrative K-12 plan, you can have up to 50 students in a room take a quiz.

With Socrative Pro for Higher Ed and Corporate, you can have up to 200 students in a room take a quiz.

Can I have 200 students active in each of my rooms?

Yep, you may have 200 active students in each of your rooms. So say you have Socrative Pro with 20 rooms, you could have up to 200 in each of those rooms taking a quiz at the same time.
