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).

How to create a rubric in Google Spreadsheets
Gerald Carey's insight:
Mr Byrne shows us how to use a Sheets add-on called "Online Rubric" to grade student work.  He suggests that this might be more appropriate when sending students feedback by email. It looks pretty simple although it helps if you are familiar with using add-ons for Sheets.
