Flubaroo: Great Free Grading for Google Docs
My school district will be piloting Google Apps for Ed this summer. While we prepare for that event, I've been researching many things that will hopefully win over teachers and students. I think that Flubaroo is one thing that will really entice teachers to try Google Forms for formative assessment. This is a free script that was developed by a Googler during his 20% time, and it helps teachers grade assessments quickly and easily. While the types of assessments that it grades are typically not the authentic, multifaceted ones, it certainly has a place in the buffet of assessment. It was really easy to use, and I hope to use it in the future to help evaluate information that I receive from my Google Forms. Enjoy!
