Flubaroo Adds a New Feedback Option - Stickers & Badges

Back in June when Google added a scoring option to Google Forms many people wondered if Flubaroo was still a necessary Add-on. The answer to that is yes for anyone who wants to grade quizzes that have multiple correct responses, fill-in-the-blank questions, and for those who who want do more advanced grading tricks like case-sensitive answers, extra or partial credit, and numerical ranges. And now Flubaroo offers another feature that you won't find in Google Forms' built-in grading tool.

Flubaroo now offers the option to include a sticker/ digital badge when you distribute grades to your students either through Google Docs or through email. Flubaroo includes some standard stickers that you can use or you can upload your own stickers to use.

To include stickers in your Flubaroo grade distribution simply select the "advanced options" when you are sharing grades. Then select "sticker set-up"to choose the stickers that you want to use. You can choose a grade cut-off line for when a sticker is or isn't distributed to students. See the complete process here.

Applications for Education
Distributing stickers probably won't change the way that you score quizzes, but it is a nice option for giving students a bit of visual feedback.

If Flubaroo is new to you, take a look at my playlist of tutorials embedded below.
