SMS Techtip: A New Upgrade to Goobrics!

Leave a comment

As you all know from an earlier post, and the tech lesson presented by Kelly Lawlor and Derek, we’re pretty big on the use of Google Classroom, combined with the power of Doctopus and Goobrics for grading.

Well, Goobrics has pushed out a new, updated web app that makes grading papers in Google Classroom even easier! Before, while reading a paper, you could click a button to bring up a pop-up of the rubric.  Any time you edited the document, the pop-up would disappear.  They’ve rectified this, and made grading a lot more seamless.

Take a look at this screen shot:

As you can see, it’s a “one stop shop” for grading assessments — you always have the rubric at the top of your screen, and can enter scores into any category as you read the paper.  When you’re done, just click “submit” and the grades (and comment) are recorded for you, and the rubric is pasted into the bottom of the document for your student.  Click next and you’re in the next paper, with a clean rubric ready to be scored.

We hope you find this helpful — per usual, if you have a tip you’d like to share, or any questions, let us know!

Oh, and for you ClassDojo users, a big update is coming tomorrow — stay tuned!

Derek & Jeremy
