Continuing with our Google tips, here are some tips for Google Classroom:
1. Add a file to an assignment
Adding a Google doc/sheet/slide file to an assignment is a great way to keep up with how your students are doing on the assignment before it is turned it. When you do this, select the setting to "Create a copy for each student" and you will have access to see each student's file as they work on it.
2. Assign an assignment to certain students
You can assign an assignment to only certain students. There are multiple reasons why this may be helpful, such as an absent student or A & B versions of the same quiz.
3. Schedule assignments for multiple classes
When creating an assignment, you can schedule when the assignment goes live AND you can do this for multiple classes at the same time. Each class can have a different date it becomes available and a different due date if needed.
You can add or create a rubric for an assignment. This allows you to use the rubric you added while grading the assignment.
5. Originality Report
By adding an originality report setting to an assignment, students can run this report to check for citation and plagiarism errors before submitting the assignment.
6. Comment Bank
There is a comment bank option for when grading and leaving comments on student work. This will allow you to add comments you use often to the comment bank. You can then simply select the comment when grading without needing to type it each time. You can even search for the comment you are looking for using key words within the comment bank.
