Flubaroo – Grade Google Quizzes in Seconds

While I’m not a big fan of multiple-choice assessment, it can still serve a function in quick, low-level, formative assessment and sadly some teachers are still required to use it.

I previously wrote about using Google Forms for online assessment.  Now I’ll walk you through the easiest way to grade student responses in less than a minute with Flubaroo.  Flubaroo is a free add-on for Google Sheets.  You can download it at http://www.flubaroo.com/.

After you have downloaded Flubaroo, and students have completed an assessment Google Forms, you’ll need to view their responses in Google Sheets.  It sounds like a lot of steps, but it’s really as simple as the two shown below.

 More Than Multiple Choice

Flubaroo has a few features that enable it to be used for more than just multiple-choice questions.  One of my favorites is the ability to accept numerical answers that fall within a range (i.e. 20-24).  You can also choose to grade questions manually (i.e. short-answer, open-ended) and assign any point value you would like.

Flubaroo is a great tool to make grading easier for teachers using Google Forms for assessment.
