Resource Introduction: Flubaroo

Here’s the skinny on Flubaroo, that Google add-on that turns forms into self-grading assessments and saves teachers tons of time!


What is it?

Flubaroo is an add-on to Google Sheets that grades assessments you have made in Google Forms. So, if you design and administer a quiz through a form, you can use Flubaroo to grade it in an instant. Not only does it grade the assessment, but it will give you brief data analysis on results and offer to send email grade reports to students. Flubaroo will grade objective questions on its own and offer a quick way for you to hand grade constructed responses. All of this happens quickly, with little set-up and few quicks. Best of all, it is part of the Google suite of applications, so it does not require you to leave Drive to administer or grade quizzes.

How can I use it?

Obviously, use it to grade digital assessments. You could also use it to instantly target problem items on those assessments.

Who’s using it?
