I am passionate about Formative Assessment. Formative is a freemium digital tool to help you know what your students know so you can FORM WHAT YOU DO NEXT! This to me is the power of EdTech. Knowing NOW how your students are doing so you can CHANGE instruction/lesson/activities to help students be more successful.
Sync Your Classes
Formative works with many platforms including Google Classroom and Microsoft Teams. I synced my Google Classroom class effortlessly. Even after it syncs Formative offers me the ability to add additional students with a code. The students go to app.formative.com/join with the code. Optionally I can just type in student names and email addresses.
Manually Add a Class
If you do not have the ability to sync your classes or you want to create a Formative class outside of the roster of one of your classes you can easily create a class. Try joining my class at JX9767. (Note, this will expire so it might be invalid when you try it.)
