In this article, you can find the following:

  • Step-by-Step instructions for adding a formative assessment template
  • Overview

    When you want to insert a new interactive Formative Assessment question, you'll click the "Add-on" menu in Google Slides, then click the Pear Deck Add-on, and select the template you want to use.

    Step-by-Step

    1. Open your Google Slides file

    2. Click the "Add-on" Menu
    3. Select the Formative Assessment Template you'd like to use.
      In this example, I'm choosing the Temperature Check Template. 
    4. Now you can edit the slide. Change the question, the font, the theme, the text color - anything you want!  You can even change the background image.

      Note: Do not delete the bar at the bottom of the slide with the Pear on it. If you delete that bar, your slide will no longer be interactive.
    5. Add as many formative assessment questions as you like
