How to Find and Submit Assignments/Assessments:
We will be using GoFormative and Discovery Education for online work and assessments. Discovery Education is accessible through students’ ClassLink (the app is titled Discovery Education (oauth). The GoFormative app may be added onto student’s ClassLink. Below is an image of the Discovery app on ClassLink.
To access GoFormative through ClassLink, you will need to add the app using the plus sign tool on the top left of the ClassLink screen. Here is a link leading to GoFormative. Below is a picture of the GoFormative logo. If you need me to reset or give you your GoFormative information, please email me ASAP.
When Will Assignments/Assessments Be Assigned?
Online work will be assigned Monday-Thursday, with Friday as a catch-up day for all the week’s lessons/assignments. Friday will be the day that assessments are given and must be taken THAT DAY unless previous arrangements have been made via email or office hours. Assignments that are not turned in will be marked as a zero.
