Dawn's Story (HS English Language Arts)

High school ELA teacher Dawn uses Formative to assess her students' comprehension of poetry:

"This tool is AMAZING! I have had students annotate passages, answer multiple choice questions, write thesis statements, code essays,etc. You name it and it probably can be done with Goformative. One time when I had students annotate a poem, I asked students to upload an image that symbolized what was happening in a given stanza. Just by looking at the images, I could see whether they were getting the gist of the poem. Students were very creative and even uploaded an image, labeled it, and added their own pictures with the freehand draw tool."

As live student responses appear, Dawn is able to give instant written feedback. Click on each picture to take a closer look:
