You can auto-grade: Multiple Choice, Multiple Selections, True or False, Short Answer, and Resequence questions by setting an answer key! 

Here's how to do it for each question: 

Multiple Choice:

Choose Multiple Choice and type your question. Enter in answer choices by placing your cursor by each selection. Mark the circle next to the correct answer. It will then be saved in the correct answer key below. 

Multiple Selections:

Choose Multiple Selection and type your question. Enter in answer choices by placing your cursor by each selection. Mark the circle next to the correct answers. It will then be saved in the correct answer key below:

True of False:

Choose True or False and type your question. Just like the Multiple Choice question, mark the circle either on True or False to mark the correct answer. It will then be saved in the correct answer key below.

Short Answer: 

Choose Short Answer and type your question. In the correct answer key field, type in the correct answer. *Please note that the Student's response must be exact to be marked correctly.

Resequence:

Choose Resequence and type your question. Enter the correct order of your options below the question. The options will automatically shuffle for your students when they enter the Formative.
(In the video, you will see what it looks like for your students in the Preview page, and how they can drag and drop the options in the correct order.)

Once you've set your answer key, your formative will automatically grade your students' responses. You can see this on your 'view responses' page. 

If you'd like the scores to be visible to students as well, make sure to set your return scores/return correct scores settings when you assign the formative.
