How often have you spent your Sunday night grading stacks of student papers? Flubaroo makes that a thing of the past. Flubaroo is an add-on to Google Forms that allows teachers to grade quizzes and provide students with feedback in less than two minutes.
In addition to helping teachers to identify problem areas, the program also allows students to receive immediate feedback. While timing of feedback is an oft-debated topic, there is research that suggests providing low-level learners with access to immediate, correct response feedback is preferable to delayed response feedback (Gaynor, 1981; Roper, 1977; Clariana, 1990). It can be difficult as a teacher to provide students with immediate feedback on quiz and test performance. By utilizing Flubaroo, the teacher is able to provide students with feedback almost immediately after the assessment has been completed. For a tutorial on using the program, please see the screencast below.
