Flubaroo? God Bless You!

I know the word Flubaroo sounds like a sound you would make when sneezing, but it is actually a wonderful Google Add-on to any Google Form. By adding this Add-on you are allowing Flubaroo to grade your Google Form for you. Think about that! Quizzes, Exit Tickets, or Checks For Understanding (CFUs) could be graded immediately upon submission of the form by your students. Just think how that might change your practice! Here's how you can add Flubaroo to any form.

Steps for Using Flubaroo

  1. Create a quiz/exit ticket via a Google Form (Required Fields: Name and Student Email)

  2. Remember: Flubaroo will only grade multiple choice, etc.

  3. Answer the quiz yourself with the right answers (Label Key, “The Answers”)

  4. From View Responses (Spreadsheet), click Add-on and search Flubaroo; Install Flubaroo. (Figures 1-2)

  5. Flubaroo will grade your quiz. (Figures 3-4)

  6. Flubaroo can email all students their grade, view a summary report, or regrade the assignment (if more students submitted again
