Google Docs: Grading Tips & Tricks

Google Docs: Grading Tips & Tricks | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it

Google docs has made it possible for me to go paperless. The decision to remove paper from my life has been liberating! Whenever I train teachers, I share my enthusiasm for a paperless classroom. My cries of joy and excitement are sometimes met with grunts and skeptical looks.

Gerald Carey's insight:

Great use of Google docs to grade student work.

Really like the idea of having common editing comments in the list of automatic inserts.

Also really like the idea of having a common set of grading comments handy in another file. Of course, you can do that with Word, but Caitlin's suggestion of linking those comments to explanatory videos is a terrific idea (see above example).

Haven't use this add-on yet but it looks like Flubaroo on steroids.

Have a read of the article to see a list of what else it can do but it does include how to create feedback based on student answers.

Data validation is one of our favorite tools in Google Spreadsheets, because it gives the Spreadsheet owner even more control over the data that’s entered. But, did you know that you can create custom drop-down menus with data validation?

Gerald Carey's insight:

Worth getting to know data validation if you ever want to use Google Sheets for marking or grading.
