Recovering data after retake

I am a formative admin for my school and we just started using Formative.

I have a teacher who gave a formative, and then students were allowed to edit answers after receiving a poor score.

Is there any way to recover the original answers as that would be more effective in our data conversations. Thank you for any help that you can give,

Not sure about ‘recovery’ but I have done two things:

  • have students correct their answers in the ‘feedback’/‘comment’ section for that problem. I see that they understand but I also have their original answers.
  • make a Copy of the original assignment and put “revise” or "corrections’ or ‘2nd attempt’ in the title. Sometimes I have students redo the whole thing (short assignments, simple answers) or ONLY the ones they missed (so I can focus only on the missed problems & can award back full or partial credit in my grade book).

Hi! I agree with the suggestions above. Another way is to have the teacher screen shot the data prior to resigning the formative.
