I love how the screen is set up so you can see what a majority of your students are doing at one time. I realized that this is how I want to show off my students’ work.
“I’ve now made over 100 formatives in the last four months and will continue to make them until I have enough for every day of the school year for next year.”
"Now that we're using Formative, the teachers only have to look at the total number correct and transfer the grade into their grade books. This process takes about five minutes"
"By 'hiding student names' students can openly have discussions about each other’s mathematical reasoning and understanding."
"Formative gives me the tool to start looking at those foundational errors, and fixing them at the time the students are first learning a concept and making those errors. As a teacher, I can finally see the ball being hit!"
"Formative’s ability to provide teachers with this option provides a level of safety for students that will really allow them to be authentic in their voice."
"Math conversations in the sixth grade classrooms became more detailed and collaborative as students were able to “show and tell” their mathematical thinking."
"I loved that they could immediately see either the correct or incorrect way to spell the word and compare their own responses."
"I decided to use Formative with my reading groups, because I was noticing that some of my students weren't completing their independent activities that were being assigned to them."
"I started and ended the unit with a short answer response on their knowledge of exponent rules."
