Formative Assessment is difficult to apply in real-world classrooms due to the requirement for extensive interaction between students and teachers. We have constructed a distributed system called FACT for in-class use that facilitates the use of popular Classroom Challenges (CCs) developed by the Mathematics Assessment Project. FACT lets students work on Android tablets equipped with styli, and enables a teacher to manage the class and to orchestrate the activities required by the CCs. In this work, we discuss the design of our system and our rationale for choosing its interaction metaphors.
