Twenty-minute Tech Tuesday--T3

This month we are happy to bring you Google Forms for creating and administering self-graded assessments! Yes, you read that right, electronic assessments that grade themselves by using the Google add-on Flubaroo. We are confident that this will prove to be so popular that we are devoting the first two T3's to this wonderfully efficient tech tool! Come check it out in the library on Tuesdays, January 5 & 12 at 2:15 PM.
