Training is a vital part of the process of getting to know Formative. If you have a department, team, school, or district subscription, this includes Success support, including a dedicated Success Manager who can conduct virtual trainings for your team. Our data shows that training makes a big difference in how teams use Formative!
To set up a training, contact your Success Manager. A link to book time directly on their calendar should be in your first emails from them, or you can email them directly.
Your options include:
- The Formative training manual: This is a step-by-step, visual slide presentation that assists educators with using Formative. It also serves as an effective tool for educators to refer to throughout the Partnership.
- Formative training modules: These are 7 modules that each contain a how-to video with relevant questions to ensure educators understand how to use Formative. The videos and questions are hosted on our website, so educators can complete them at their own pace. The modules also serve as an effective tool for educators to refer to throughout the Partnership.
- Virtual train-the-trainer session: This is a non-recorded 45-minute/1-hour virtual session via Zoom or Google Hangouts. In this session, your dedicated Success Manager will teach a small group of educators the basics of using Formative. These educators become your Formative experts, who can then train the rest of the educators and serve as a helpful resource throughout the school year.
- Virtual training / PD session: This is a non-recorded 1-hour virtual session via Zoom or Google Hangouts. In this session, your dedicated Success Manager will teach your educators the basics of using Formative.
