@geilers this slipped my mind earlier, but when you import a class from Google Classroom a class code is still generated , which students can use to manually join the class. It appears on the Classes page to the right of the class name.

If you were to have teachers use it to join your class, I would encourage them to create student accounts that do not use their primary email addresses since they’ll most likely want to save these ones for associating with their Formative teacher accounts. You could also consider creating student accounts for them and add them to a class as shown here.


I teach high school algebra. I was wondering if there was a way for the grade from the formative to go right into google classroom when it is done? Other websites have done this (like quizzizz, for example). I am new to formative and am trying it instead of google forms for the simple reason that students can actually submit their own graph or own equation as a answer, which you can’t really do in google forms. All my quizzes had to be multiple choice in google forms. I like that they can show me what they know. But I would like to see the grade appear in Google Classroom for me to return without having to export all the grades, then input by hand all the grades into google classroom, as that just makes more work for me. :confused:


I requested the same thing awhile back. It would be a HUGE time saver!! I mentioned that EdPuzzle ‘posts to Classroom’ AND ‘brings scores back into the Classroom grade book.’ So, I know it’s possible. I’m sure it’s just a matter of coding and/or coordinating with Google to get the right permissions activated when signing in the first time.

Wile I would like a more complete integration, perhaps when the student clicks the submit button in a Formative it could also trigger a submit assignment in Google Classroom. That way at least I get the email from Google that someone has completed an assignment.


this will be a huge improvement. thanks

When I post to Google Classroom, I have to go back into classroom and edit each of them. If I do not, the category and topic do not show up correctly in GC.

Is there a way for Formative to allow me to edit those options before the posting happens?

Hi @mbrewer! That is useful feedback, and I’ll let our development team know that you’d like those editing options!

Most of you are probably aware by now, but we have added a lot more integration with Google Classroom recently! :tada: For example:

  • Our Premium users can now pass grades back to Google Classroom automatically! Read how to do that here.

  • If you’ve assigned a formative to a Google Classroom class and want to update your assign settings, you now have the option to “Update only” so that a new post isn’t created in your Google Classroom stream :slightly_smiling_face:

We love to hear what would make Formative better for our educators, so please keep the feedback coming!


Posting formatives to Classroom is good but if you change something in it you have go back to the settings in the formative and turn off post to classroom to avoid multiple posts of the same thing. If I read the question corrctly

Have just used pass back once so far for an exam grade and it was really useful

Hi @Jason_Jorgensen! Have you seen that you have two options when you update the assign settings? You can choose the “Update Only” option, and that will not re-post the formative to your Google Classroom stream. :slightly_smiling_face:

Yes it took me a while to figure it out and many mr which do we do? Questions lol
