Our 7th-grade math department loves the ability to use GoFormative’s standards tracking so much for our students’ daily work that we decided to give it a try for a quiz. However, what we found was that earlier classes were showing the quiz to students who had our classes later in the day.
We considered just handing out paper copies of the quiz and using GoFormative for blank questions to have students record their answers, but we’re really like for them to still be able to see the questions while they’re taking it.
We experimented with trying to close the Formative, but students can still see the Formative when this happens - they just can’t edit their work anymore. We tried unassigning it, but then it gets rid of the students’ answers.
Is there a way to make it so that I can control the times when the Formative link is live? For example, at the end of a class period, I want to be able to deactivate students’ access so that any student who clicks the link to go to the quiz or test would get a message telling them that it’s not available at this time, so they could only see the test questions during their class times when I reactivate the link?
