Google Classroom has added some new features this week (December 2015) that make grading in Google Classroom a little easier. While I always recommend you do NOT put grades in Google Classroom, if you do use Google Classroom for grades you may be interested in these updates.
By default, the students are sorted by done and not done status. Click on “Sort by status” to sort the students alphabetically.
In the bottom left-hand corner of Google Classroom is a question mark icon. Choose the “Send feedback” option to tell the Classroom team what you love about Classroom or what suggestions you have.
My wish: A focus on feedback instead of a focus on grades. Feedback faster!
