5 New Things You Can Do in Google Classroom This School Year

1- Single view of student work
Classroom now has a dedicated page for every student that showcase all of their work in a class. ‘With this new view, teachers and students can see the status of every assignment, and can use filters to see assigned work, missing work, or returned and graded work.’

2- Reorder class cards
Teachers can reorder their classes and organize them based on their own criteria (e.g., work load priorities, daily schedule, etc).

3- Decimal grading
Classroom integrated decimal grading allowing teachers to ‘use decimal points when grading assignments in Google Classroom.’

4- Transfer class ownership
With this new feature teachers and admins are able to transfer ownership of Classroom classes to other teachers without having to recreate them.

5-Display class code
Teachers are now able to display a unique class code in full screen so students can rapidly join new classes.
