I have two Categorize activities that I created. The activities won’t score correctly. No matter which selections are made, the activity scores as 0/100 pts. Can anyone let me know what step I am missing? Thanks.
Can you send me a link to the formative and let me know which question?
Can you still help me with this problem? I was overwhelmed in Sept with this scoring issue and have not used Formative again until today. I still have the same problem. Since I just renewed my Premium Edition, I would like some help on these two activities:
Hi @Joan_Kane, I’m seeing some students for that formative and question do have 100%.
If you turn on partial grading for the question then students will receive a partial score for some correctly matched items. Here’s an explanation of how the grading works for the categorize question, https://help.goformative.com/en/articles/3406786-how-we-grade-the-allow-partial-credit-feature-categorize-questions.
I did not get the Macroeconomics vs Microeconomics to score correctly and never heard anything back from you.
I thought I would try another Categorize activity and have new problems:
- The 5pt for the activity is incorrect and I never set that up. (BTW - the same problem as above)
- I cannot move (drag and drop) the events into the correct category so I can not set the correct answer.
Here is the link to the activity: https://goformative.com/formatives/6034488769ea35c5fc2eef4a
At this point, I am disappointed in Formative. I use many types of tech and never had so much trouble getting the software to work. The $144 cost for a plan is expensive for something that does not seem to work and is impossible to find tutorials or get any tech support.
Hi @Joan_Kane, the last time I looked at this it seemed as if the grading was working the way it should, based on the settings. I had never received a reply to that response (or at least I don’t see it here), did it work after you enabled partial credit on the question?

Can you post some screenshots and/or provide some more details? I’m not sure I understand. Is it possible you set the default point value to 5? This can be done on the settings page: https://goformative.com/profile/settings

What browser are you using? If you try in Google Chrome does it work? Maybe you could enable the “Record a bug” feature and try to reproduce that. That option is at the bottom of this page: https://goformative.com/profile/accountInfo.
Thanks for getting back to me. I appreciate your responsiveness in a frustrating situation. As a classroom teacher, it can be difficult to find the time to follow up when software doesn’t work. I found Wordwall and it seems to be much less complicated to use for Categorize activities. However, I feel that I have a $144 commitment in Formative so I’ll give it one more try before I make my final judgment.
- Macroeconomics vs. Microeconomics
This activity still does not score properly.
The score is set to 1pt. Not sure how that happened.
- Shifts of PPF Curves
I deleted the activity after spending 90 minutes on it last night. I will try to recreate later today and see the same problems continue.
I need help with:
- How to score the different activities.
I have searched for tutorials and tried to navigate the Formative community. I checked the settings and it was set to 5. I have changed that default. Thanks for the link; I am sure I would never have found that on my own.
How do you rest a score for already created activity?
I am using Chrome (Version 88.0.4324.182 (Official Build) (64-bit)). It’s the most current version.
I will try to enable the “Record a bug” feature and try to reproduce that. It will have to be next week since my school has Parent-Teacher and other activities this week.
Ho do you add graphics to messages? I saw that my screen captures didn’t go through.
