Rubrics and Google Forms

Need to grade student presentations?  Why not use a Rubric?  I used to grade oral presentations using a clipboard with copies of the lesson rubric for scoring - like those shown here.



You can also do this with Google Forms.  Just set up your Rubric in a Form, and use your mobile device (Tablet, Phone, or Chromebook) to grade as you view each presentation.  


Key questions to add to your form:


  • Student Name

  • Student Email Address

  • Hour/Period

  • Separate Question for each Rubric item (Hint:  Use Linear Scale)


Afterward, use Autocrat to merge your form entries with a pre-formatted document that can be emailed to the student once grading is complete.


  • Try this Sample Rubric (use your own name and email address to see results) -

  • Watch this tutorial on Autocrat -

    • YouTube Video

Plickers

(Not a Google App, but cool!)

This option is great for schools in which teachers have access to a tablet or phone, but the kids may not.  


  • Plickers is an app available for Android and iOS, that uses QR-style codes to gather responses from students.  

  • The Plickers app can be used to scan the room for responses to questions that teachers create.  

  • Each student has their own set of cards used to respond to questions (See below).  

  • Students are assigned to a specific Card Number.  

  • Depending on which way the card is oriented, the app will pick up the student's answer.  

Responses are collected by the app and saved to your Plickers account.  Cards can be printed from the Plickers website - https://plickers.com/cards .  Get started by visiting http://plickers.com.

Tips:  If you are using an Android Device, you may need to play with the Rotation of your Camera until it accurately picks up the answers.  See this link for help - https://goo.gl/n8CKwf
