For those who attend “The End of Paper Forms” session, this post is a follow-up to that session. Our last example was the use of the form aspect of GoogleDocs to allow students to take a test on a GoogleDocs form, have the answers appear in the GoogleDocs spreadsheet, have the individual answers marked correct or incorrect, have the spreadsheet calculate the individual student scores, and have the spreadsheet conduct item analysis on each question.
If you would like to take the sample test, click the link below:
You may wish to make up a name, since I have set this example up so that anybody can see the results for everyone’s work.
After you have taken the test, want to see how you did? Click this link:
Here is what the teacher sees.
You will see two tabs at the bottom of the screen. On the tab marked “Enter Answer Key,” you will be able to view your answers. On the tab marked “View Results,” you will see your work graded. You will also see the graded work of others, and an item analysis for each question.

Did you use Flubaroo to grade this or another program?

I have seen Flubaroo, but had developed my tool long before. Mine does not involve a script to download as does Flubaroo. Just thinking back to the capabilities I saw with Flubaroo, mine does not have the e-mail capabilities.
That being said, if you are familiar with Flubaroo, you have the basic concept of how mine works.
When I work with a school, the process starts with my making a copy of the tool and giving that copy a unique name. I share it with the contact at the school and then change the ownership to them. That will allow them to unshare from me. That way, the school’s data is not showing up in my Google Docs.
This tool is workable for anything from a classroom-level spelling test or multiple choice test to a benchmark test given at the district level.
