Troubleshooting and FAQ

  • My students can't see their formative on their dashboard anymore!

When a formative is closed, students will no longer have access to it on their dashboard unless you set scores to return (or correct answers) when you assigned the formative. You can update your Assign settings at any time to do this.

  • I closed my formative because I don't want my students to see it on their dashboard anymore. How come they still see it?

If you have "Return Scores" or "Return Correct Answers" set to "After student submits," "Instantly," or "When Closed," students will still be able to see it. To remove it from their view, change these settings to "Don't Show Scores" and "Don't Show Correct Answers."
