As an administrator or decision maker of your school’s Socrative account, there may be times that you would like access information about who among your teachers and students are using Socrative and how they’re interacting with the app. While we understand your interest and the potential benefits this information could provide to plan and manage your implementation, there are restrictions we need to follow when it comes to handling the personally identifiable information (PII) of our users.
What is PII?
Firstly, let’s clarify what PII is. PII is any information that can be used to identify a specific individual, such as their name, email address, phone number, or even their location (like the school they work at or attend). This information is sensitive and needs to be specially handled to prevent identity theft, harassment, and other forms of misuse.
How does Socrative Protect our users Privacy?
One of the ways that we protect user privacy is by limiting access to PII. This means that users are not allowed to view details about other users or their PII unless they have been granted explicit permission to do so. An example of this is Socrative’s Shared Library. While user PII is revealed within the Member’s tab of the Library, only users who have been provided with the sharing link will be able to accept inclusion in the Library and appear within this tab. Additionally, quizzes contained within a Shared Library exist separately from any reports or data pertaining to the launching of those quizzes for students. If an administrator wanted to see a list of all students who have completed a quiz housed within a Shared Library we would not be able to provide that information as we could not confirm that the admin had permission to view the PII of those students.
