VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: FLUBAROO UPDATE
Hi, you are with Mike Reading from usingtechnologybetter.com and in today’s short Google Apps for education update I’m going to show you a new release in Flubaroo that is making self grading assessments just that little bit better.
So here I am inside a self grading assessment that I’ve already created. If you are not sure how to create a self grading assessment then I’m going to drop a link to a previous video that we’ve created showing you how to make those self grading assessment using Flubaroo as the script to do that.
So in creating an assessment. If you are used to Flubaroo you would notice when we click on Flubaroo the usual options are just here but as of yesterday, Flubaroo has been updated and you can see that now we have some extra options.
The first one you might notice is that we can now set the language which is pretty cool but we’ve also got some extra information here. After we email the grades, you will see here after we’ve created Flubaroo that there is a new column here that never used to appear.
After you email the students, what used to happen was that if a student did a test and you wanted to email their grades, you’d have to email everybody again. Now what Flubaroo does is they put in a little X in this emailed grade column and if a new person comes and takes the test, then the test will only be emailed to those people who don’t have an X so that’s a great addition to that Flubaroo script.
The other option you can see here is you can see that there’s edit help tips. If we click on this little option just here, it will take us back to the grades page and you can see now that we have a new row just here.
What you could do is if you wanted to provide feedback to your students, you could add some tips in here,and that when you email it out, that tip will go back to your students and that would be able to do that so it will pick up that extra script when you go in email and the tips will be there for you as well.
The other option that is available for us inside Flubaroo is that we can edit student’s feedback. If I click on this link, once again it will add some feedback for the students and now what you are able to do is be able to provide individualized feedback to the students. So if you have played with Flubaroo and you normally went to email the grades, you would know that you would get an option to send a message to all the students but it wasn’t personalized.
It was just a general message that you could talk into this box. Now what you can do is you can put individual feedback and that feedback there will be able to be sent through to your students. So there are a couple of great additions to the Flubaroo script that just make providing feedback to our students just a bit easier and more comprehensive.
So that’s some great additions to the Flubaroo script that just make making self grading assessments that much more accessible and providing feedback to our students just that a little bit easier.
