Go Formative is a digital platform that allows teachers to find, upload or create digital formative assessments.
Go Formative allows you to save paper and time grading. You are also able to watch your students answer questions in real time and leave feedback.
There is both a free and premium version. The free version has limited content and question types as well as PDF/Doc uploads per month.
Go Formative is integrated with Google Classroom so you can import your classes, post an assignment directly and students can log in using their school Gmail account.
USING GO FORMATIVE
Advanced Responses. Go Formative offers response types that are not easily recreated in tools such as Google Forms. Some that you might find useful are Drawing (Show Your Work), Graphing, Equation (Numeric), Resequence and Categorize.
- The 2017 National Education Technology Plan lists Graphic Response, Hot Text (selecting or rearranging sentences or phrases), Equation Response and Performance-based Assessment as enhanced question types that ”allow students to demonstrate more complex thinking and share their understanding of the material in a way that was previously difficult to assess using traditional means”.
PDF/Doc Upload. Use Go Formative’s PDF/Doc Upload feature to easily enhance existing resources by overlaying advanced response options.
Real-time Monitoring & Feedback. Monitor how your class is doing in real-time while using the feedback feature to engage in conversation and help students while they’re struggling.
Automatic Grading. Go Formative can help you save time grading and notify you if you do need to change a manual grade.
