On the 5th episode of EdUp EdTech, we speak with Matt Wheeland, Territory Manager of Departments, Schools, and Districts at Formative. We talk about everything from our journey from classroom to ed-tech, and how personal and professional challenges led Matt to exactly where he wants to be, working with a great company! We also get into topics like preventing cheating on assessments and how to address these issues by implementing the use of Formative in your classroom.
Use by 1 million students weekly, Formative is a teaching and assessment solution. Teachers can: - quickly create formative assessments from scratch or upload PDF's - view live student responses - create advanced question types: audio response, graphing, diagram, video, etc. - easily tag standards - monitor student mastery of standards
