How to efficiently make a saved worksheet become an assignmen in Google Classroom, and save you more time?
The worksheet you created and saved can be used to make an online interactive assignment of classwork and homework, or quiz and test. Please read the article "Overview" for the general procedure. This article discusses some practicle issues you may want to consider when making an assignment.
To make a classwork or homework assignment, consider to enter an due date and time.
To make a quiz or test, you may want to specify an Scheduled date/tiime and due date/time for each class, so that the assignment will be presented to students at the scheduled time. To our experience, Google Classroom may delay 1 ~ 3 minutes when presenting a scheduled assignment. So, it would be a goog idea to specified a scheduled time 2 or 3 minutes before the desired time.
Except for choosing types of questions, which you do before saving or edit after saving the worksheet, all other considerations mentioned above can be specified in the select class form (step 2 in the process mentioned in Overview)
How to grade students' responses to assignments in Google Classroom?
Using edusofttech service to grade students responses in Google Classroom is applicalbe only to assignments created through our service of worksheet for Google Classroom.
To grade students' response, click on nav item "Google Classwork", then select the assignment and then the class.
Multiple choice questions are autometically checked and scored. If there are short answer questions, student response will be presented for you to score. The total score and the grade will be automatically calculated as described below:
By the convention of Regents test, each question, either multiple choice or short answer, is credited one point for correct/acceptalbe answer. The grade is calculated by the formula:
grade = maximal points x (total score / total number of questions)
maximal points is the points you entered when creating the assignment
total score is the sum of scores including multiple choice questions and short answer questions
total number of questions is the number of questions of the assignment.
There are two modes of grading:
1. Grading as draftgrade,
2. Grading as assignedGrade
If you choose "Grading as draftgrade", the grades will be posted in Google Classroom as draft grade, students will not see. You'll have to login to Google Classroom, go through each class and students to return to students and make the draft grade become assigned graded. The advantage is that you can review and modify the grade before returning to students.
If you choose "Grading as assignedGrade", no need of further work on the grading.
How do students response and turn in the response to a worksheet assignment?
Worksheet assignmnet created through edusofttech is the same as other classwork that you create directly from Google Classroom. So, students would response and turn in their work the same way as they do other assignments you create directly in Google Classroom.
Can I edit or remove a worksheet after it's created and shown in Google Classroom?
Google Classroom doesn't provide a method to communicate back to our server for editing or removing classwork you do inside Google Classroom. So, what ever you do in Google Classroom doesn't have an effect on the records in our server.
So, you can remove a worksheet assignment in Google Classroom. The record in edusofttech remains unchanged though. At the moment, no function to remove an assignment record is implemented. This is to prevent from accidentally removing a record by mistake, resulting in unable to grading students response from the server.
For editing, if you are to grade students response manually in Google Classroom, then, you can edit the assignment. But, if you are to use edusofttech's grading, error may occur since the records in Google Classroom and in edusofttech is not the same. In this case, we would recommand:
How do students response to questions that ask for a drawing?
Some short questions may ask for a drawing response, such as drawing a Lewis dot structures of a molecular.
Google form doesn't provide a function or toole for making a drawing as response. So, there is a limit on this. One way to work around: ask students to open a Google doc, make drawing there, and sumit the Google doc as an attachment when turning in the assignment, then you grade the response to that question in Google classroom.
How can I see students response details?
Following the steps below, you can see students response details:
A Google sheet will be created with the students' responses filled.
The first row of the sheet is the column name,
The first column (A) is the time student response,
The second column (B) is the student name and class
From the third column on are the questions numbers, starting at question number 1, and so on.
From the second row on are the students responses, one student's response per row.
To see a student response to a question, identify the row of the studuent response, say row 5, and then the column with the question number, say column E (question number 3), the student response to question number 3 is at the cell (5,E)
Why do I get timeout error with empty response while douplicated forms were generated.
This is a known bug of chrome browser when generating a large form. What happened was: when a large form is being generated, it took a longer time, and chrome re-sent the request to google server, making it even longer to complete. The repeated requests generated multiple forms, and may lead to time out.
Use another browser, such as firfox.
