Formative is valuable for teachers looking to make their classes more interactive and engaging. For example, a history teacher can transform a PDF document into an auto-graded quiz, allowing for instant feedback and quicker grading. A math teacher can use advanced math tools to create challenging problem sets that encourage critical thinking. Language arts teachers can enhance reading passages with questions that improve comprehension. With the ability to provide real-time feedback, teachers can address student misunderstandings immediately. Imagine a teacher using Formative to see who is struggling with a concept during a lesson and offering instant assistance, improving overall learning outcomes. Additionally, the platform supports collaboration, enabling teachers to work together on curriculum development and student assessment.

A creative application might be for a cooking class, where students record video responses demonstrating their culinary skills. Teachers can watch these videos, provide feedback, and assess their techniques, all within the Formative platform.
