ATTN Social Studies Teachers: Ways to create varied summative assessments

Hey everybody, I’ve noticed a couple of users asking for ideas on how to use formative in social studies. I thought I would share a couple examples of a test and a couple quizzes that I’ve made. One of the things I love about Formative is how you can make question types jump around. This (I find) keeps the student engaged while they take it (instead of zoning out after umpteenth multiple choice questions).

A New Nation Test
Early U.S. Expansion Quiz
Climate and Weather Quiz

I would love to hear other’s ideas on ways to ask questions for assessments too!


I love this idea. Thanks for posting this. Always looking for fresh assessment ideas!
