Today is a quick post with some free stuff!
1. Growth Report Google Sheet
If you’re interested in producing a richer, more useful “grade” (i.e. growth) report for students, try this Google sheet template. You’ll need some intermediate Google sheets/ Excel skills and it works best if you’re already using standards based assessment practices.
2. Rapid Feedback Authoring Tool
This website helps you create a form and then use it to quickly write narrative feedback to students. The drag-and-drop comment bank makes writing feedback even faster, freeing your brain to focus on student work.
3. OBS Screen Recording Software
This open-source screen capture software is really easy to use and produces high-quality videos in many formats. I like to capture myself inking on student work and narrating feedback. I then paste the video into OneNote, or upload it as unlisted to YouTube and send students the link. It’s also easy for students to use for recording their thought process when solving problems.
