Abstract: The aim of this study was to understand how students’ attitudes were connected to the web based software Socrative. The study was conducted with 50 students taking first year physics courses in a university. The survey dimensions were based on four previous research works and the survey instrument was extended to better reflect the current study needs. Quantitative results showed that there was no difference between attitudes of male and female students. Moreover results indicated that students in the civil engineering major had significantly more positive attitudes than molecular biology and genetic major students. For the results of the qualitative question students generally mentioned the practical use, time saving, immediate feedback and enabling many question types as the advantages of Socrative. Based on these results, it can be noted that Socrative serves an important role in student engagement and attitudes toward physics.
