Looking for reasons to use Formative? 7th grade Math teacher Rachel has 3 that impact student learning in major ways!
"I use Formative daily in my classroom...
1. First and foremost, it's paperless. At my school, we are 1-1 technology and going paperless is the goal of everyone! Formative has allowed me to go completely Post-It less!
2. Secondly, I use Formative daily to assess student knowledge. This allows me to collect data immediately and provide instant feedback. I have a handful of students who will immediately ask me, "How'd I do?". This is huge! They are taking ownership of their learning and if they don't do so well, they will always ask, "What can I do better next time?".
3. Thirdly, I use Formative to assess my students weekly on weekly quizzes. Everyone Monday, students are eager to see their grade and find out if they have to retake their quiz. I have a no fail policy in my classroom. Anything less than a 70%, they are required to retake it. GoFormative allows me to quickly grade and communicate learning to students. When I provide feedback on student answers, they are able to receive timely feedback and correct their mistake for next time."
