With Flubaroo, You'll Never Have to Grade A Test Again

Flubaroo is a free auto-grading tool that you can use with Google Spreadsheets to instantly assess your students.  Students simply complete a fill-in-the-blank or multiple choice quiz or test and their grades are automatically compiled and available for viewing by the teacher, class, parents and whomever else the teacher chooses.  

It also...

  • Computes average assignment score.
  • Computes average score per question, and flags low-scoring questions.
  • Shows you a grade distribution graph.
  • Gives you the option to email each student their grade, and an answer key.
I made the video below that shows you how to get started with Flubaroo.  

Here’s a video from Flubaroo that provides more information on how to use it and what it can do.

If you didn’t catch all that, the instructions below walk you through creating an assignment, and grading it with Flubaroo:

Innovative educators love Flubaroo. Connect with them and read what they’re saying here.

Students will love Flubaroo, because it can be set up for them to instantly know whether they've answered something right or wrong rather than a week later. As a result they can go back and brush up in the moment.

So, what are you waiting for?  Go create a test or quiz, or better yet, have your students create one.  When you do, come back here and let me know how it goes.

  1. The irony here is that multiple choice exams are far and away not innovative. I do like to demo this as a way to get educators to see the power of what can be done with Docs and Scripts ;^)
