Classkick or Formative: Which Should I Use?

Classkick or Formative? This is a question I get a lot. The short answer is: BOTH. The long answer is, well, longer. Like any other tool comparison, it depends on what you want to do with them. I really like them both for different reasons. 

Here is a chart I created that compares some of my favorite features. I hope it helps you decide which one you need for your lesson tomorrow!

The good news with these two tools is that no matter which one you choose, you will have picked a great one.


  1. Fabulous perspective! Thank you so much for taking the time to compare and share!

  2. Just wanted to let you know that we released a grading feature in Classkick. Please see this quick video for an example: and let us know what you think!

    1. Thanks, Laura. I tried that feature this week and blogged about it here:

  3. You can import PDF into formative, however, you are unable to then draw on that pdf. You would need to change it into a jpg, gif, png file in order to make it a Draw question. That is one big advantage for Classick that you can easily bring in a pdf and write on it.
