Logging in and Taking a Quiz as a Student

There are multiple ways to login as a student and the method differs slightly depending if the room is rostered or not. Regardless of login method, students do not need to create an account in Socrative, which means they can connect with their teachers quickly & easily!

1. Invite Student During Activity

Once the teacher launches a quiz, they will have the option to invite their students:

  • Launch Quiz

  • Click 'Invite Students'

  • A QR code and room URL will generate. Students can either scan this QR code to join their teacher's room automatically or visit the gosocrative.com URL.

2. Share Room URL or Embed Your Room Link to a Third-Party App

Teachers can embed their room into a PowerPoint/Slideshow or learning management system. They can either provide a Room Link or Download and add the QR code to the presentation so students can automatically join their room.

Accessing the Room Link and QR Code and Downloading the QR Code

  • Click the 'Rooms' tab in Socrative.

  • Click the 'Share' icon to the right of the room name.

  • In the ‘Share Room’ menu that appears, you will have the option to share a direct URL (or ‘Room link’) with students and/or download the QR code.

Resetting the Room Link and QR Code

To provide access to a new set of students and revoke access for the previous group of students, the Room link and QR code can be reset. To reset the group link and QR Code:

  • Click the 'Rooms' tab in Socrative.

  • Click the ‘Share’ icon to the right of the room name.

  • In the ‘Share Room’ menu that appears, click the circular arrow icon to the right of the 'Copy Link' button. The Room Link and QR Code will be reset when clicking on the link.

Students will need to enter the room name provided by the teacher. Enter the room name and click Join to login. If the room is NOT-ROSTERED, students will have access to the activity.

If the ROOM IS ROSTERED, students will be required to enter their Student ID before clicking Submit. The IDs are created and provided by the teacher; if the Student ID doesn't match one assigned to a student in the particular room's roster, they will be unable to log in.

As students join the teacher's room, they'll be able to participate in all of the activities launched until they log out. If there's no activity running, the message below will be shown:
