🗒️ On October 2, 2023, the Starter Plan, K-12 Pro, and USHE/CORP Pro Plans were discontinued. If you purchased any of these plans, you will maintain access to the respective paid features. You can find more details in the article below.

If you wish to upgrade your subscription from the free version of Socrative to one of our Paid Plans, you will gain access to select paid features ! You can even choose to trial these plans for free for 21 days. If you do choose to trial our paid plans, note that after your trial ends, you will be charged unless the trial is cancelled before the trial end date.

The features included in our paid plans can always be viewed from within your account beside your profile on the 'Choose Your Plan' page. This is accessible by selecting the 'Get Pro' option if you're new to upgrading or the 'View Plans' option if you want to upgrade or modify your existing Pro account.

Which plan should I choose?

Socrative is designed to help educators effortlessly assess and engage their students while visualizing learning progress in real time, and the paid plans help educators get even more.

The Essentials Plan focuses on helping educators save time and more efficiently close feedback loops with timely and transparent communication of learning progress.

The Pro Plan is designed for educators who want to scale assessment for impact with collaborative team features that simplify quizzing for large classes. Group Purchases are only available on this plan as it focuses on collaborative team features.

Take a look here to review benefits and prices.

What happens if I change plans from Socrative Pro to Essentials?

If you change to a plan with a lower price, you will receive a credit on your account of the difference in price. This can be used towards the payment of your next renewal. The credit amount will depend on how much time is left remaining on your current subscription plan from your next renewal date.

What happens when I downgrade to a free plan?

You can adjust your access and downgrade from one of our paid plans to the free version of Socrative at any time. We've compiled some of the most commonly asked questions regarding downgrading below.

Quizzes

What happens to all of my quizzes when downgrading from a Paid Socrative plan to the Free version of Socrative? The free version of Socrative allows access to only the last 5 modified quizzes in your library. As such, when you downgrade, the quizzes in your library may exceed plan limits. The last 5 modified quizzes will be editable or able to be launched with students. You can upgrade anytime to access additional quizzes or create new ones in your library.

Reports

Does my access to Reports change when downgrading from a Pro Socrative plan to the Free version of Socrative?

Yes. The free version of Socrative allows you to access report history for 30 days after the quiz is finished. If you need access to reports beyond 30 days, you can re-upgrade to a paid plan anytime.

Rooms

What happens to my rooms when downgrading from a Paid Socrative plan to the Free version of Socrative?

The free version of Socrative allows you to have one room. You can regain room access anytime by upgrading at any time.

When downgrading to a plan offering more than one room, you'll have continued access to the default room plus the most recently created rooms (up to the room limit).

Showbie

Can I still access the Showbie integration when downgrading from Socrative Pro?

The Showbie integration is only offered via the Socrative Pro Plan. You can re-upgrade to Pro anytime to use the Showbie integration. In some cases, you may still see the connection icon. You can manually disconnect your Socrative room or account from Showbie.

Why can't I see my plan anymore?

On October 2, 2023, the Starter Plan, K-12 Pro, and USHE/CORP Pro Plans were discontinued and removed. If you purchased any of these plans, you will maintain access to the respective paid features.

Starter Plan (Discontinued): Will now have access to the Essentials Plan Features and Reduced Limits -20 Quizzes, 5 Rooms, 50 Students per Room, and 30 days of Report History.
