If you have your students complete an assessment via a form, and you have multiple choice and fill-in-the-blank questions, Flubaroo will grade them for you! Some of our teachers have already enjoyed using this tool, so I created a guide for others who might be interested in giving Flubaroo a try!
The Autocrat Add-On is a great way to take a spreadsheet and input the data into a Doc or PDF template. You can make certificates, letters, and more using that. At NBC, we have used it to take student test submissions from a form to create separate documents. Then teachers can grade and/or comment and share back with each individual student. Here is a Google Doc I created to give step-by-step assistance with the staff in that process:
This is an extension that I find really exciting and useful specifically for our staff members using AutoCrat to deliver benchmarks. Lazarus automatically saves students' work as they fill in forms (any form - not just Google forms). That way, if a computer crashes when someone is in the middle of an exam (as did happen for many of our students!), their work is saved.
How does it work? When the student reopens the form, a small yellow ankh appears as they type on the right-hand side of the box:
This lets you know that Lazarus recovered information from that box. Clicking the logo will allow students to select what they had already typed and lost.
If you are interested, go to the Chrome Store to get Lazarus!
