A new weekly Go Formative quiz opened on Friday, Feb. 19th for ELA. A new quiz for math and ELA will be opened on Friday, Feb. 26th. Remember the quizzes will be available for one week only. Go formative quizzes give us information about a student's understanding of a topic so they should be completed by the student independently.
