How do you know what students know in Google Classroom? Do they do warm ups but not group work? Will they do a Quizizz but not a class discussion? The trick to being able to answer these questions is to be CONSISTENT when you post assignments to Google Classroom. Add hashtags to Google Classroom.
Add Hashtags to Google Classroom
In the description of your assignment add a hashtag for anything you wanting to track. Put a hashtag for the standard. For example #pythagoreantheorem or #1.01.C.6. I push enter a few times and make a string of multiple hashtags for any way that I can possibly categorize the assignment.
Increase Critical Thinking
You can rate critical thinking on a scale of 1 to 4 using Depth of Knowledge. I add the DOK level to ALL of my assignments. For my attendance question I use the hashtag #DOK0. This helps me to know if I am improving my goal to increase the amount of #DOK2 and #DOK3 problems.
If you want to use Google Classroom for Standards Based grading you will want to be sure to add your standards or objectives to the Google Classroom assignments as hashtags in the assignment description.
Tracking Hashtags with Schoolytics
FREE! You can use Schoolytics to see how your classes are doing on each of the hashtags you added to Google Classroom. You can also break it down by student. After syncing your Google Classroom classes for free, click on “Assignment Tags” on the left side rail. This will allow you to look at performance on the different tags. Filter by class, classes, groups, and/or date.
Drill Down Per Student
Clicking on the Students table you can drill down per student. This not only gives you great information about student performance and allows you to get a student progress report, but you can view student performance on each of the hashtags.
Export the Tags Report
Use the 3 dots on the table to export student performance to a Google Doc (Save to Drive) or Google Sheets.
