Welcome to Flubaroo

Welcome to Flubaroo | Web 2.0 Tools in the EFL Classroom | Scoop.it

Used this lots - an excellent grading tool. 

 

Create a series of questions/quizzes using Google Forms then download the script which will turn the form into a self marking activity.

 

You can create a range of different closed questions: multiple choice, Yes/No, Short answer questions.

 

Records scores, averages, high/low scores and can also email students their results.

 

Very easy and simple to do.

Google Drive is offering some incredibly helpful tools to help teachers...and the students will react positively for technology based interactions.  Consider this article as an introduction if you are not yet familiar with the Google Drive tools.
