Create & assign digital quizzes, then track students' progress

Overview

Formative is a web-based tool that allows teachers to create assignments, deliver them to students, receive results, and provide individualized feedback in real-time. Teachers can use the platform to create new assignments for their students from scratch, or they can upload pre-existing documents and transform them into paperless assignments. Accounts are free for teachers and students.

APPROACH

Teachers can set up new accounts through a link on the company website. They can then enroll students in one of two ways: 1) Give students a class code and asking them to self-enroll through the company website or 2) Fill out a spreadsheet with student roster information and email the spreadsheet to a company representative.

Teachers use the platform to create new assignments for their students from scratch. Alternatively, they can upload pre-existing documents and use features of the Teacher Dashboard to transform them into paperless assignments. Students can use any Internet connected device to complete their assignments, and their responses are immediately sent to the teacher. Teachers can grade assignments manually or automatically and then send students individualized feedback. The Teacher Dashboard also provides real-time analytics that teachers can use to track student growth across standards.

IMPLEMENTATION

Formative is designed to run on any device that is connected to the Internet.

PRICING

Accounts are free for teachers and students.

WHO IS USING IT

Over 10,000 students and over 1,000 teachers are using Formative.

I have used many digital formative assessment tools in the past, but felt that each tool was lacking one or more features that I needed in order to for the assessment data to be user-friendly and immediately accessible in order to differentiate my teaching immediately.

If they offered already created questions for different topics for different subject areas, that would save a lot of time whenever I have to create a new assessment. Another thing that would be great is if there was an option to deliver an assessment to the students at scheduled time and date. ...
