Interactive Assessments with Formative

Good news PISD educators!

You now have a premium account to Formative. This tool provides the ability to give real time intervention during assessments, save time by assigning assessments through Google Classroom, and automatically track your student's progress. 

Here is an example of the "grid" where you can observe your student's responses to questions, give feedback, and identify potential intervention opportunities in real time. 

What Else Can You Do?
