Andy describes a clever little trick using Google Forms, have you got a trick like this up your sleeve that you'd like to share with your peers here on TechRepublic?
Nice post. In addition, it is possible to leverage Google Apps Script for more options. On the Google Apps Developer Blog there is an example script called Flubaroo. The blog post is called "Grading Made Easy using Apps Script". Perform a search to find it.
Have you tried the Flubaroo script for automating the grading? If not you should look at it. We recommend this to all of our teachers when it comes to making quizzes with Google Apps. It's free and automates grading and more. As a tech coordinator in a school district, I appreciate all of the great tips and articles. Keep them coming!
Using Google forms saves me much time taking attendance for 5 sections with over 100 students. Students sign in at the beginning of each class and the spreadsheet automatically adds the date and time. I use the same form throughout the semester and the spreadsheet can calculate how many classes a student attended or not. I can also add additional questions from time to time in order to survey students about a particular topic.
