Something I am very curious about is if kids at the front or the end of the alphabet have an advantage when it comes to digital grading. Let’s be honest, we do not grade the top of stack of papers the same as the bottom. The stack of papers was not in any particular order though. Digital work is pretty much always in alphabetical order. The kids with a last name of A are getting feedback more quickly.
I usually do not have time to give feedback to all students in one sitting. Having a system for noting grading status would be very helpful. I created a script to give me a list of the student documents in the Google Classroom assignment folder in Google Drive. I have a column to note the grading status. I also assign each document a random number to allow me to sort randomly. After providing students feedback, the GradeTheFolder script will rename the document to note the grading status.
Get the Folder ID
After making a copy of the template, go to Google Drive and locate the “Classroom” folder. Inside that folder is a folder for your class. Inside that folder is the assignment folder. Open up the folder for the assignment you wish to provide feedback on.
Link to Document
A link to each document is in column C. Use this link to open student work and to insert comments.
Column A is where you can indicate the status of the document “graded,” “reviewed,” “incomplete,” “see teacher,” etc…
