General Questions

What is Socrative?

Socrative is an instant response tool designed for effective engagement and quick assessments.

What class size is possible?

The maximum number of students who can comfortably participate in a single Socrative Free classroom is 50.

The maximum number of students allowed to participate in a public or private Socrative PRO classroom is 150.

Is the 150 student limit a hard limit?

While rostered rooms are limited to 150 students, public rooms in Socrative PRO are not. However, depending on your environment, we can't guarantee an optimal user experience over 150 students.

Can I have 150 students active in each of my rooms?

Yes. You may have 150 active students in each of your rostered rooms.

Can I have multiple rooms?

Socrative Free only allows one classroom per account. If you would like multiple rooms (up to 20), you will need to upgrade to Socrative PRO.

How long can I leave an activity running?

Socrative only allows you to have one activity (per room) running at a time. This activity will remain active until you click Finish or choose to start another activity. We recommend leaving the Socrative app or browser open so you can watch the results roll in. Don't worry about closing your browser or shutting down your computer—the activity will not end. Until the quiz is manually concluded, you can keep it open for as long as you want or need.

How can I run multiple quizzes?

You'll need to have Socrative Pro for this. This is because only one activity can be running in a single room and the Basic version of Socrative only allows one room. In the Pro version, you can create additional rooms which will allow you to run activities in each one.  

How many questions can I have in a single quiz?

There can be a maximum of 1000 questions in a quiz.

Is there a limit to how long questions and answers are?

Socrative questions can have 65 000 characters while answers can have 10 000 characters. 

What math symbols are available?

Socrative currently allows subscripts and superscripts in the question text and multiple choice answer fields.

Can I delete reports?

Yes, Socrative allows you to delete unnecessary reports as needed. Please note that you can only delete the reports created by you.

Can I add audio or videos clips to a quiz?

At this time, we do not support uploading audio tracks or video files in quizzes. However, we are always looking at ways to improve Socrative and the ability to add sounds and video clips is currently under consideration.

Will my content still be translated if I upgrade to Socrative PRO?

Absolutely! All your existing content will remain translated.

If I upgrade to Socrative PRO, will I lose content from my Free account?

Nope! All of your existing quizzes and reports will still be available in Socrative PRO.
