Click on the quiz you want to export. You will be brought into the quiz page where you can view all the questions. For this tutorial, we will be exporting World Facts Quiz, the default sample quiz provided by Socrative to all newly registered users.

Step 3: Select all the questions with your mouse

Select all the questions in the quiz starting from the first question to the last question.

This can be done by placing on mouse cursor on the left of the question number "1" (i.e. your first question), press and hold down your left mouse button and drag it to the bottom. Please check that you really included the first question number in your selection (you can see that the question number "1" is selected in blue in the screenshot above).

Do not include any other content in your selection other than the quiz questions.

Step 4: Copy and paste the selected content into the GETMARKED editor below

With all the Socrative quiz content selected, copy and paste it into the GETMARKED editor above. You can copy the quiz questions by pressing ctrl + c on your keyboard and then ctrl + v to paste.

Now, wait for 2 seconds. You must wait for 2 seconds as some steps are happening to cleans up some of formatting issues found inside the Socrative quiz questions. During this period, you might see some changes in the GETMARKED Editor above.

Now, select all the questions inside the GETMARKED Editor above using ctrl + a, then copy and paste it into Microsoft Word. You can copy the content from the editor by pressing ctrl + c on your keyboard. Open Microsoft Word, and press ctrl + v on your keyboard. You should get the same result as the screenshot below.

Step 5: Annotate the correct answer for every questions

Now, you need to annotate the correct answer for every question in your Word document. This next is absolutely necessary since the Multiple Choice Questions are exported into Word without any alphabetical choice labels, so this step provides additional information to GETMARKED to help identify the questions types.

You can annotate the correct answer by adding an asterisk to the end of the correct options for MCQs and True-false questions. Here are some examples.

For short answer questions, instead of adding an asterisk to the end of the correct answer, you should add Ans: at the the start of the answer. Here's an example.

When completed, your quiz questions should look something like the below after annotating the correct answer for every question.

Save the Word file on to your desktop. Register for a GETMARKED Digitaliser account and upload the saved Socrative Word quiz for import.

GETMARKED Digitaliser is a browser based software that allows you to import any Word document quiz file and export it to any platform of your choice. As long as your word document quiz file was prepared for classroom use in mind (as is the case of copy-and-pasting the Socrative quiz), we will be able to import it correctly.

Below is a screenshot of the successfully imported Socrative quiz questions using GETMARKED Digitaliser.

NOTE: Eagle-eyed readers might have noticed that multiple choice in question four looks off. That's because during the copy-and-pasting, explanation was also captured in the quiz. The last option in question four should have really been the explanation. This can be correctly handled if you add a Explanation: tag at the start of the explanation to tell GETMARKED to treat it as an explanation.

If your quiz does not contain any explanation, you can ignore this.

Step 7: Export to the LMS of your choice
