Quiz Creation

To create a new quiz in Socrative, go to your Library in the top menu, then navigate to the right and click Add, and select New Quiz.

You can then enter a name for the quiz and start adding questions.

Adding Questions

You can select the desired question type at the bottom of the page. You will then be able to type in your question content.

Within your questions, you can do basic text styling and add pictures. You can also Insert Math Equations, add pictures into multiple choice answers, and insert embeddable links. With a Socrative Pro plan you can add Embeddable Videos too!

Question Types

There are 3 types of questions you can add to your quiz:

1.) Multiple Choice

In multiple-choice questions, you can add a variety of answers for students to choose from. You must have at least 2 answers.

To select the correct question responses, click or tap the circle beside the corresponding letter response. A green check mark will appear beside the correct response choice. If you have 2 or more answers selected as correct, students will need to select all the correct answers to get the question correct.

You can also add pictures and embeddable links into multiple choice answers. With a Socrative Pro plan you can add Embeddable Videos as well.

2.) True/False

For true/false questions, you can enter a statement that students can either select as True or False.

3.) Short Answer

For short answer questions, students are able to type in their answers to the question.

To get their question marked correct, students must enter their answers exactly as you set them (spelling matters).

Once you've finished creating your quiz, click Save and Exit at the top. You can then Launch the Quiz for your students to complete.

Edit Your Quiz

To the right of each question, you can:

  • Click the Pencil icon to edit it

  • The Trash Can to delete it

  • The Up and Down Arrows to move it within the quiz

  • And the Copy Button to copy the question within the quiz.

To add a question between two questions, hover your cursor between the two questions and click Add Question.

Once your question has been created, you cannot change the question type. For example, you cannot change the question from a Short answer to a True/False question type. You will need to create a new question for this change.

Adding Explanations

You can add explanations to questions, which will be shown to students after they submit their answers during the quiz. To enable this feature, turn on Show Quiz Feedback in the Quiz Settings when you Launch the Quiz.

Note: A Free account can have up to 5 quizzes in the quiz list at one time.
