Formative is a web-based student response and assessment tool for the flipped, BYOD, or 1-to-1 classroom. Upon sign-up, teachers can add classes via class code, URL, Clever, or Google Classroom. Teachers can then choose whether to take advantage of detailed tutorials and a plethora of content showing ideas for use, or they can upload or create assignments on their own that let students type, record audio, enter numbers, draw, upload an image, answer multiple-choice questions, and more. Students can use accounts (which allows teachers to track their progress over time) or respond without logging in.
