Now that the apps that make up Google Drive have been available for a while, they are spawning a whole new generation of extensions that can make your work easier. If you are teacher who uses the forms capabilitity of Drive, you may be quite excited about one of these extensions: Flubaroo.
Yes, I now it is a whimsical, made-up name. (It makes me think of the Disney classic The Absent-Minded Professor which revolves around the discovery of Flubber, a miracle for the professor's ancient Model T and a boon for the college's basketball team.) The beauty of Flubaroo is that it helps you grade the assignments completed by your students.
The idea is that you create a form that represents homework, a quiz, or a test for your students. They get online and fill out the form, so Drive aggregates the responses to the form in a Sheets spreadsheet. You then use Flubaroo to analyze the aggregated answers and calculate grades for each student.
Sound interesting? It's free, and you can find more information about Flubaroo here:
