How to get started:
Once you create an account, you can click on the question mark icon on the upper right of your Formative page and you'll be able to quickly and easily access resources to help you the most out of Formative.
Instructions for students:
If you import your students from Google Classroom or Clever, accounts will be automatically created and your students will be able to access formatives directly from those platforms or sign into Formative using the SSO option.
If your students don't have Formative accounts, they can sign up here. Once they create an account, they can join your class on Formative using a join code for your class(es).
Alternatively, you can create accounts for your students directly from your Classes page.
Once a student is in your class on Formative, they will automatically see formatives assigned to their class--there's no need for any more codes.
I signed up for the wrong account type:
If a student accidentally signs up as a teacher or a teacher as a student, here's how to get setup with the right account type.
How many students can you have in a class with Formative?

Recommended devices and technical information:
Formative can be accessed from any device that has a modern browser and stable internet connection. We do recommend Google Chrome or Firefox when using a computer, Safari for iPads and Chrome for Android devices. Browsers such as Internet Explorer are outdated and we can't guarantee it will work with the newer technology used for our site.
Schools generally have more secured networks and your school may need to whitelist the following sites for Formative to function properly:
squarespace.com (this step may not be necessary, but squarespace houses community.goformative.com and it at least needs to not be blocked.)
