Using Google Scripts – Flubaroo for Quick Grading

January 7, 2013

How To, Technology in Education

Ever heard of Google scripts?  Scripts are snippets of code that can be added to Google products to increase functionality.  Flubaroo is a popular script that can be added to a Google form that allows for quick and automatic grading of assignments.  Flubaroo can also create score reports and email scores to students (or whomever completed the form)….all very quickly and easily!
Check out the video below for a demo of Flubaroo.  

To add Flubaroo to your Google Docs, follow these steps:

1.  Login to Google Drive.  Select “Create” and choose “Form”.
2.  Create your test, quiz, or assignment.  **I recommend including fields for first name, last name, and email address (so scores can be emailed).
3. In Google Drive, find the corresponding spreadsheet for the form you just created.
4. Choose “Insert”.
5. Choose “Script”
6. Search “Flubaroo”
7. Install Flubaroo
8. Authorize the Script and Close

**IMPORTANT**
Before using Flubaroo, you’ll need to take your own quiz/test/assignment being sure to put in the correct answers.  This will be used as the ANSWER KEY.

    I do not create many responses, however i did some searching and wound up here Using Google Scripts – Flubaroo for Quick Grading | Ms.
    Computer Teacher’s Blog. And I do have 2 questions for you
    if you usually do not mind. Could it be just me or does it appear like a few of the remarks appear as if they are
    coming from brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh
    you have to post. Could you list of every one of
    all your communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
