Instantly Grade Google Docs with Flubaroo

Back in February, at the annual ASCD conference, I saw a presentation by Google, where they demonstrated a number of tools your can use with their documents.  One of those tools was Flubaroo, which I just now had my first opportunity to test drive.  If you are comfortable with making a Google Doc quiz, then Flubaroo is simple script you can use to provide student feedback.

To test it out, I created a short quiz, and shared it with colleagues.  The video below steps you through how I used Flubaroo to grade it:

Think about some of the ways we can use this:

  • Have students submit homework or quick quiz responses.
  • Have a few computers with a Google Doc quiz serve as an activity in a learning center
  • Allow students use phones or laptops to respond to short prompts.
  • Provide daily basic skills assessments, instantly graded

I’d love to hear how others are using this tool.
