When you first sign up for Formative, the default score threshold will reflect a more traditional grading framework:

However, premium and partner users can change these thresholds by visiting your Profile Settings page. From there, you have the ability to adjust these thresholds in the following ways:

  • Change the color for each score range

  • Add additional ranges

  • Adjust each individual range of scores

Once you have changed your thresholds and clicked "Save Changes," these changes will also take effect for your students. Any formatives that are graded and returned will feature the same thresholds and color-coding you have set up in your account.

Teacher and Student Score Threshold Improvements

Students now see the same color coding for score thresholds in their progress bar as their teacher when scores are returned within a formative. You can adjust your score thresholds and color coding at any time

*Please note, that at this time, all ranges must have a minimum score of 0 and a maximum score of 100.
