The Benefits of Sharing Formative With Parents

The other night, teachers at Kennedy Middle School showed parents how they use Formative in their classrooms! Sharing Formative with parents is a great idea because not only can you demonstrate how it helps you provide individualized support for each student in the classroom, but you can also start to collaborate with parents to support students at home.

For example you can host virtual office hours like Formative Educator Lisa Burkhart! She notifies parents that she'll make a formative visible for a few hours each day. This allows students and their parents to review their responses, scores, and the feedback you give, together. Plus,since all their formatives are stored in their account, it never goes missing! What a great support for student organization and parent-teacher conversations!
