Very recently, Google released an update to Classroom allowing users of Google Forms to import grades from assessments. This is a huge time-saver in terms of recording assessment scores when using Google Classroom in conjunction with your SIS or District Gradebook. Very simply put, this means that once your students click submit, not only will Forms grade your assessment, but a button has been added allowing you to import those grades into Classroom in one click!
