5) In at number 5, an online quiz tool that has been around for a while but is still used across the education sector today! That tool is 'Socrative'! Socrative is a quiz-based, formative assessment tool with multiple features that can enhance teaching and learning.

This is the top 5 online quiz tool and although Nearpod has a wide range of quiz functions, our number 1 pips it to the post! Our rating is an excellent 4 / 5 Free version available.
