Below are two Google Docs add-ons that you can use to grade students assignments and provide written feedback to them. The apps will absolutely facilitate your grading and save you some precious time to spend on other instructional tasks. Check them out and share with us your feedback. Enjoy
1- Grading Help
‘GradingHelp leverages Google Docs comments, so you can easily link between the student’s text and the related comment, which appears in the margin. GradingHelp provides a summary at the end of a student’s paper. The app groups feedback into the rhetorical categories found in the sidebar and then weights each category according to the number of comments in each category. This feature shows students their biggest opportunities for improvement. This feature also offers instructors a quantifiable way to measure a student’s improvement over the course of a term.’
‘OrangeSlice: Teacher Rubric increases the teacher’s grading productivity by eliminating repetitive clicks, presenting the rubric selections in an easy to use format and presenting the final grades in a consistent, professional format. More time is created for the teacher to provide the needed constructive feedback their students need for success.’
JoeZoo Express, our Google Docs add-on, has 3 time-saving marking tools: Writing Feedback, Rubric Builder, and Grading Assignments.Our tools are automated, teacher-designed, preloaded with feedback and requires no student installation – facts that have resulted in our nomination for the Digital Innovation in Learning award (DILA).
