As Jo Bailey put it on Voxer “Very Slick!”

I had used Flubaroo in previous short quizzes in class, but I had not used it for a few months and thought it was about time I pulled it out of the woodwork to help me grade my short answer/multiple choice.  I set it up on google forms as I have done in the past, and if you are not sure how to do this, check out the video below.




Then I made my answer key, but when looking in the settings I saw ‘Autograde’, something I had not seen before.  I gave the script permission to run;

And started to play with the autograde.

I found that when I had used it in the past I would have to run the Flubaroo to send out the scores to the students. Now as soon as they submit the google form it will send them their score and a summary with a colour code for each question:

Then in the responses sheet I can still get the data of what was submitted and a percentage of how many students got each question correct.

So once you have set it up to autograde you can either have one submission (done in the google form options) or leave it open to allow the students to retake and flubaroo will allow you to see how many times they have submitted.

Though multiple choice questions are generally shallow level learning, it certainly helps to give a quick assessment to see where there is gaps in student learning, and both you and the students can have a visual of where they are up to on their learning journey.  All in all a ‘slick’ solution to a paperless classroom.
