One of my favorite Add Ons for Google Sheets is Autocrat. Recently, New Visions Cloud Lab released an update to Autocrat – Version 3.0. With this new version, users get a slick, easy to use interface, along with a few new features.
As this new update is rolled out, I recently updated my tutorial on Autocrat to show how to use Forms, Sheets, and Autocrat to create a Rubric for grading Oral Presentations.
In the past, when grading student projects or presentations, I had paper copies of my rubric scoring sheet clipped to a clipboard, and I would score each presentation, handing students their copy at the end of class. However, this meant that I either had to photocopy them so I had my own copy, or I had to fill it out twice.
With Google Forms, Sheets, and Autocrat, creating a digital rubric means:
- I can use a tablet or phone to fill out the rubric as students present.
- I can provide students with immediate feedback via email.
- I have a spreadsheet of all scores I can reference at any time.
- I am paperless!
