How to add students to your class:

  1. Go to the "Classes" tab

  2. Click the blue plus sign on the right side of the class to add students

  3. Enter the student's first name and last name

  4. Enter the student's email address into the Username/Email column

When you enter an email address for the username column, students will receive an invitation to join the class once you click the "Add Students" button.

If a student joins your class incorrectly, use this method:

  1. Go to the "Classes" tab

  2. Click on the dropdown menu next to the class name to show the list of students in the class

  3. Click on the bubble next to the student's name

  4. Choose "Remove" from the menu that appears at the bottom of the page:

Then, add the student to your class again. For this, you can either add the student's school email address or add them with a username and generic password which the student can reset.

Please note: If, for some reason, a student has accidentally created a Teacher account on Formative instead of a Student account - you will not be able to add them to your class until they have deleted the Teacher account. In this case, a message will appear on your screen informing you of the issue and providing a link to the solution
