How to Share & Print Grades Through Flubaroo

This morning my inbox contained a bunch of emails from readers who had questions about the new grade sharing and printing options available through Flubaroo. The best way to answer those questions is with a video. The video embedded below provides an overview of how to use the new grade sharing and printing options available in the Flubaroo Add-on for Google Sheets.

Video - How to Use the New Features of Socrative

On Thursday I wrote a post highlighting the new features of Socrative. Over the last eighteen hours I received a few questions about how to use the new features so I sat down and put together a short screencast demonstrating how to add pictures to Socrative quizzes and how to set up a quiz for self-grading. The video is embedded below.

A Google Forms Demonstration

This morning Greg Kulowiec and I are introducing Google Forms and the Flubaroo script to a great group of teachers attending an Ed Tech Teacher workshop. The form you see below is posted for the purpose of demonstrating how a Google Form looks when it is embedded into a blog. If you would like to complete the form, feel free to do so. If you're interested in learning how to create Google Forms and how to use the Flubaroo script to grade multiple choice assignments, please see my 57 page guide to Google Drive and Docs for Teachers.

Update: 11:30am July 17. The form has been removed.

Quickly Grade Quizzes With Flubaroo

Two of the most popular posts of 2010 dealt with creating quizzes in Google Docs. Last March in Google for Teachers I provided directions for administering a quiz online through Google Docs. Last September I shared directions for making those quizzes self-graded. The directions for creating self-graded quizzes are good, but the first time you try it you might find it to be a little frustrating  (it sure was for me the first few times I did it). Recently, I learned from Kristen Swanson about an easier way to grade quizzes administered through Google Docs.

Flubaroo is a free script that you can use grade the quizzes that you administer through Google Docs. Flubaroo provides great step-by-step directions for using the script. I'll give an quick overview of how it works. First, create your multiple choice quiz using Forms in Google Docs (get directions here). Then take the quiz yourself and have students take the quiz (you can embed it in a webpage or direct students to the URL for your form). Now instead of trying to grade the spreadsheet cells you will insert the Flubaroo script by selecting it from the "insert" menu in your spreadsheet. Once the Flubaroo script is inserted just select it and it will grade the quiz for you.

Applications for Education
While multiple choice quizzes definitely don't fall into the category of authentic assessment they are still used by teachers for a variety of purposes. If you use multiple choice quizzes for any purpose, giving that quiz through Google Docs and grading it with Flubaroo could save you a lot of time that you can put to better use on other tasks.

For the record, I occasionally (4-5 times a year) give them for the purpose of check-point surveys of my students' knowledge of things like vocabulary terms.

Holiday Edition: How to Create Self-Graded Quizzes in Google Docs

I'm taking a few days off to relax and enjoy the holidays. Just as I did at this time last year, for the next three days I'll be re-running the most popular posts of the year. I'll be back on Monday morning with fresh content. Happy Holidays everyone!

In my free ebook Google for Teachers I included directions for creating and publishing a quiz using Google Documents forms. Recently, Dr. Mark Wagner published a blog post that includes directions for creating formulas that will result in quizzes created in Google Docs forms being self-graded. His post includes a video screencast and slides. I've embedded the video below.


Applications for Education
Grading quizzes can be a tedious task if you have many students on your roster. Creating and administering quizzes through Google Documents forms can save you time and save paper at the same time. By saving time on grading you can give students feedback quicker than before.
