A-Z Tools & Technologies: Flubaroo
Google Forms can be a great way to quickly poll or survey students (providing you are not capturing any sensitive or private data), to stimulate engagement and incorporate active learning to enhance the effectiveness of a lecture (see Stimulating Participation in Lectures). They can also be used for Mid-Module Evaluation, or to check understating & knowledge acquisition through Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs).
Flubaroo is a free tool that helps you quickly grade multiple-choice or fill-in-blank assignments that you created in Google Forms.
More than just a grading tool, Flubaroo also:
- Computes average assignment score.
- Computes average score per question, and flags low-scoring questions.
- Shows you a grade distribution graph.
The instructions below walk you through creating an assignment, and grading it with Flubaroo:
