Boss Battle is NOT formative assessment
I was really excited about the "Boss Battle" being a "formative" assessment, but it's NOT! This is incredibly disappointing seeing as how the students are a lot more interested in learning about a subject through ClassCraft. I thought "Boss Battle" was something that could be done individually by a student on their own account; hence being labeled as a "formative assessment". I didn't think it would be something that is done with the whole class. A whole class assessment where students can get a little too excited and try to give the answer to someone else is more an informative assessment. This might work for older students but not for younger ones (who I teach). I also don't like how the students can't click on the options shown. Instead they click "Show Answer" which of course will lead them to say "Yes, that's the correct answer, I got it right." even though that's not the option they were thinking of. I feel "Boss Battle" would be a lot more effective and truly a formative assessment if it was individual and can do done via the student's account. My students agree that it is not fun the way it is done now. They would be a lot more interested in doing a "Boss Battle" if it were completed by them on their own laptop. And myself, my colleagues, and my administration would feel it would be best if they clicked on the option as opposed to "showing the answer". Please, please, please improve the "Boss Battle"!
