Become a Formative Master Faster with Our Reimagined Help Center:
Our Help Center is a great place to find the most up to date information about Formative! You can find everything from how-tos for new features to new ways to use existing features. The entire collection is now searchable directly from your account, regardless of which page you're on, so you can find answers when you need them. Be sure to check out our newly revamped Video Tutorials too!
If you can't find the answer you're looking for, click "Start a conversation with us" and we're happy to help.
As we're adding more and features, we wanted to make options easily accessible. When you're in your formative, you can click on the drop down to access options such as sharing, publishing, printing, join instructions, etc.
Improvements to Drag & Drop for Categorize Questions: Premium*
Students no longer need to drag and drop to place an item in a category. They can simply click and drop! This is a big improvement for those with small screens and touchscreen devices.
Save Time and Add to Your Answer Key While You Grade: Premium*
On the View Response page, you can click on a student's response that's been auto-graded as incorrect and add it to your existing answer key with one click. This will update your answer key so that other students with the same response are marked correct too.
Set Random Question Order as Your Default Assign Setting: Premium*
If you find yourself almost always clicking "Display questions in random order" when assigning your formatives, you can change your default assign settings to randomize question. Default settings can be changed or adjusted at any time.
*The ability to correct answer choices from the View Response page, randomize question order and access to additional question types such as our Categorize question are a few of our many great premium features. Find out more about premium here or visit this page to compare all of our available subscription types.
See Timestamp in the Tracker:
If you open a student's response in the Tracker, you can see the time/date they answered the question.
Tracker Score Calculations:
We listened to our educators and made another change to the Tracker. The Tracker will only show 0's if the question was auto-graded as a 0 or the teacher scored the response(s) as a 0.
