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.

Product Use: I have used Formative to give exit surveys and end-of-unit tests.

What Worked and What Didn't: In my opinion, Formative definitely works as a successful exit survey, but I still prefer Google Forms when giving quick surveys or polls. On the other hand, I believe that Formative is an amazing way to assess students on end-of-unit assessments. Also, Formative is an easy way to differentiate assessments because students can have the option of typing their work, showing their work by drawing, or by attaching an image! Genius!

Age Group: Middle school students
