A room is automatically added when you create your Socrative account; this is your default room. Although you can change the name of this room, you won’t be able to:

  • Add a roster

  • Delete it

  • Exclude it from the menu

Rooms do not contain a roster of students. When a student logs in to a public room, they will need to enter the room name and type in their name. Teachers can find their room name at the top of the app while logged in:

Teachers share this room name (whether rostered or not) with their students so that they can connect to the room and complete any activities launched by the teacher

Rostered Rooms

Once a roster is added to a room (either manually or by importing a CSV or XLS file), it becomes a private room. Students log into a private room by typing the room name and their student ID that are provided by the teacher. Students will see their names in the header of the room.

If you have a Socrative PRO account, you can add up to 20 unique rooms. You can have up to 50 students per room with the K-12 plan and up to 200 students per room with the Higher Ed & Corporate plan. You’ll also have the ability to run multiple quizzes, polls, exit tickets, or space races at the same time.
