Google Assignments, your new grading companion

Aug 14, 2019

[[read-time]] min read

Article's hero media

Instructors lose valuable time doing cumbersome tasks: writing the same comment on multiple essays, returning piles of paper assignments, and battling copy machine jams. These frustrations are most often felt by instructors with the highest teaching workloads and the least time. For the last five years, we’ve been building tools—like Classroom and Quizzes in Google Forms—to address these challenges. Now you can take advantage of these tools if you use a traditional Learning Management System (LMS). 

Assignments brings together the capabilities of Google Docs, Drive and Search into a new tool for collecting and grading student work. It helps you save time with streamlined assignment workflows, ensure student work is authentic with originality reports, and give constructive feedback with comment banks. You can use Assignments as a standalone tool and a companion to your LMS (no setup required!) or your school admin can integrate it with your LMS. Sign up today to try Assignments.

If you're one of the 40 million people using Classroom: you've got the best of Assignments already baked in, including our new originality reports . For everyone else, Assignments gives you access to these features as a compliment to your school’s LMS. 

Assignments is your tireless grading companion

Using an LMS can create more work than it saves: students turn in all kinds of files, you have to download and re-upload student files one-by-one, and what if students can keep editing after they already turned in their work? Assignments handles all this for you.

Assignments streamlines the creation and management of coursework, and tackles some of your biggest frustrations:

Stop typing the same feedback over and over by using a comment bank, and never worry about pressing the “save” button again

Check student work for originality and automatically lock work once it’s turned in

Assign files with the option to send each student a copy (no more copy machines!)

Grade assignments for an entire class with a student switcher and rubrics, and review any file type without leaving your grading interface

Comment and leave suggestions on student work with Google Docs

Instructors and students can attach anything to assignments: Docs or Word files for papers, spreadsheets for data analysis, slides for presentations, sites for digital portfolios or final projects, Colab notebooks for programming exercises, and much more. 

Help students turn in their best work with originality reports

With originality reports in Assignments, you can check student work for missed citations and possible plagiarism without interrupting your grading workflow. When students turn in a document, Assignments will check students’ text against hundreds of billions of web pages and tens of millions of books. 

If you enable originality reports on an assignment, students can also check their work for authenticity (a limited number of times) to correct issues, turn in their best work, and save instructors time grading. Since both you and your students can see originality reports, they’re designed to help you teach your students about authenticity and academic integrity. 

Getting started with Assignments

Starting today, you can sign up to get access to Assignments when it becomes available in a few weeks. Assignments will be available for free as part of G Suite for Education and can be used by instructors alongside or integrated with an LMS. 

Instructors can use Assignments even if your school has an LMS. There’s no setup required, all you need is to sign up and have a school-issued Google account. 

Admins can turn on access to Assignments within your LMS. Assignments is available as an LTI tool, which provides a more integrated experience and enables roster syncing and grade transmission to your LMS gradebook. Assignments is an improved and expanded version of Course Kit, so if you’re already in the Course Kit beta, you’ll automatically have access to Assignments. 

If you use Canvas, we’ve worked with their team to complement the Assignments LTI tool with a set of additional features that make Docs and Drive work seamlessly across all Canvas assignments.

Teaching with Colab (Part 2 of 2)

google assignment notebook

In Part 1 , I explained why Colab is great for teaching Python programming. In this article we’ll get into the details — I’ll show you some specific examples of how Colab can enhance your Python teaching toolkit.

Interactive Lecture Notes

Lots of teachers share their lecture notes as slides or docs, which is fine but those are decidedly read-only artifacts. Wouldn’t it be nice if your lecture notes could be interactive, like this example :

google assignment notebook

Students can also check their understanding, as in the following example :

google assignment notebook

Interactive lecture notes offer multiple advantages over their static counterparts:

  • While lecturing, instead of just claiming something is true, you can prove it by running code embedded right in your notes. * After class, students can actively review your notes by running the notebook and seeing how it works for themselves. * Students can experiment, make code changes and see the results. * Students can annotate their notes, all in one digital copy.

With this approach, lecture notes come alive, which leads to active learning — giving students an interactive playground in which they can experiment and learn by doing .

Make sure students start with a clean slate  — You’ll want each student to start with their own copy of a given class notebook so they can freely change, annotate, and experiment without affecting your official copy. To encourage this approach, all my notebooks start with the following guidance:

google assignment notebook

Digital Homework

Interactive notebooks are great for homework assignments, because you can:

  • Lay out the assignment goal and instructions in markdown cells. * Include any setup steps (e.g. install required packages) in a code cell. * Provide any required helper functions or other utility code. * Include code hints and building blocks.

Here’s an example homework question:

google assignment notebook

For class work or homework, you can also provide test code cells, which students can use to verify their work. Here’s an example :

google assignment notebook

This gives students a definitive way of knowing when they’ve solved a challenge correctly. Unit testing cells also give you a natural opportunity to have a discussion about testing and why it’s important.

How do students submit completed homework assignments? Since Colab notebooks offer the same storage and sharing model as Google Docs, you can have students submit their completed homework by simply sharing their notebooks with your teaching staff. You can also assign Colab notebooks via Google Classroom, which avoids the extra manual sharing step for students.

Another helpful option is providing hints or even full solutions via hidden cells, which can be concealed by default, by inserting #@title at the top of a markdown cell, as shown in this example :

google assignment notebook

Students can expand the hint or solution if they get stuck but, by default, the extra help will be hidden from their view.

You can, of course, have separate notebooks for lecture notes and homework, but I prefer integrating homework into my lecture notes because that keeps everything associated with a given class meeting in one place.

Assessments

In-class or virtual assessments can also be implemented using Colab notebooks. These would look quite similar to the homework challenges described in the previous section, however, these might be time limited and may be pre-shared with the teaching staff, so submission is automatic at the end of the assessment interval.

With the techniques summarized above, students maintain their own interactive digital artifacts, recording instruction, independent work, annotations, experimentation, comprehension checking, hints/prompting, and testing. These notebooks become a living, individualized, learning artifact managed, maintained by and for your students.

How to Set up Digital Science Notebooks with Google Slides

Do you want to use digital science notebooks with your students, using Google Slides, but you’re not sure where to begin? Don’t let that hold you back!

google assignment notebook

Karen Sinai

google assignment notebook

Updated June 26, 2021

I’ve been using digital notebooks for many years now and I’m going to take you through step-by-step on how to set them up with your students. You’ll see how easy and straightforward they really are and there are so many rewards! See 15 Super Benefits of Digital Science Notebooks

Note: I will be taking you through the directions on the Google Slides app but it is easy to figure it out on a desktop as well.

Have Students Create a New Presention

Using either the Google Slides app or the website, have the students create a new presentation by hitting the +. The title of the presentation is important so the student should make sure to include their own name and the name of the unit. This way, when they share it with you, it is apparent who it belongs to because it comes up in the subject part of your email.

Create a new presentation in Google slides for digital notebook

They should use the plus icon, on the bottom left-hand corner of the screen, to create a title slide. They should include the title of the unit and their full name. My students like to go back later and add lots of images and drawings to this title slide. I also have several title templates that I send to them to use.

Create title slide for digital notebook

Students Share Their Digital Notebook with You.

The best part of this digital science notebook is the real time assessability that you will have once the student share the presentation with you. Students should hit the icon in the upper right hand corner, that looks like a little person, and they will be given a place to type in YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS.

Share the presentation with you

You will get an email notification that the student wants to share the presentation with you. When you click on “Open in Slides“, you’re now ready to see their presentation in your Google Slides app.

Creating a Basic Table of Contents

Even when I had paper science notebooks I always required a table of contents at the beginning. This served the purpose of keeping the students organized and I could see the assignments at a glance. There are two different ways of making a table of contents. 1) Simple Slide Titles 2) Hyperlinked Slide Titles

For both methods, students start by creating a table. They go to the upper right hand corner and click on INSERT TABLE. I have found that the dimensions that work best are two columns and 10 rows.

Creating a table of contents in google slides

With the basic table of contents, each time students create a new slide they name it and add it to this chart in chronological order. Note: when students are creating a new slide, I highly recommend using the “Title Only” slide format. This encourages the students to always label their work and makes the hyperlinks much easier.

Creating the table of contents for a Google slides presentation using title only slides.

How to Create a Hyperlinked Table of Contents

I prefer hyperlinks in the table of contents because it makes grading the longer notebooks much easier. I can simply put it into presentation mode(arrow at the top right) and then hit the hyperlink that I need to grade an assignment.

Students should click on the first cell of the table and then go to the upper right hand corner to click on INSERT LINK. They will see the titles that they have created for each slide or it will simply say “Slide 1 or “Slide

Creating hyperlinks on google slides

When the student clicks on the name of the slide it will add a hyperlink from that slide to the cell in the table of contents.

google assignment notebook

Note: In the beginning of the school year I send the students many templates that I created. I send them templates for Cornell notes , video notes , class notes , CER templates and lab reports . They keep these images in their camera roll so that they can insert them as background images when they need them. Of course, some students want to make their own templates and do a beautiful job at that!

Over 200 pages of templates in science interactive digital notebook

What Should Students Add to Their Digital Notebooks?

The simple answer? Everything!

By the time they are done each unit, they will have a whole story in chronological order of what we covered and how they personalized it. Examples of what they may add:

  • Photos of labs, some with annotations
  • Photos of outdoor exploration
  • Videos of projects
  • Project rubrics, daily journals and self assessments
  • Slow motion videos of lab results such as chemical reactions or ball collisions
  • Time lapse videos of clouds, storms, plants, etc
  • Cornell notes with templates from textbooks, websites, articles, etc.
  • Video Notes with templates while watching YouTube videos
  • Class Notes using templates for background information “ lectures”
  • CER Templates for multiple activities including photo prompt bell ringers
  • Mini or more developed lab reports using templates
  • Graphs created on Excel, Numbers or Google Sheets
  • Drawings created on multiple sketching apps
  • Interactive slides with labeling or drag and drop activities that I send them
  • Photo or research prompts that I send them
  • Videos and photos that they take through the microscopes of pond water, prepared slides, etc.

How Do You Grade the Digital Science Notebooks?

One of the great features about having a shared document with each student is that the student is never sure when you were going to check their assignments! I quite often do a complete/incomplete grade in my grade book without the students being aware.

Another nice feature of Google Slides is that you can make comments on a student’s slide that will show up as an email to them. When they resolve the comment it will come back to you in an email so you know they have acknowledged your comment.

It is so nice to be able to speak privately, via adding comments, to a student during quiet work time to either praise them, help them or bring them back on track. Nobody is the wiser that you’ve had any communication with an individual, which can be very important to a middle schooler who is easily embarrassed.

One of the reasons that my students are so conscientious about their notebooks is that they know at the end of each unit they will be graded with a rubric. I give the students the rubric at the beginning of each notebook so they always know the expectations. When it comes time for me to grade, I simply circle the parts of the rubric with the “SHAPES” feature. The digital notebook grading rubric that I use is free and I have tweaked it for many years.

How Digital Notebooks Help With uStudying For Finals

Although I am 100% digital in my classroom, I still believe in paper tests and quizzes. If there is any student who is a little bit slower with technology, I don’t want them to be at a disadvantage.

When students take a test or quiz we go over the answers and correct them. Once this is completed, students take a good, clear photograph of each page and place that as the last page of their science notebook. This way, when it comes time to study for the final, they have the entire notebook and the assessment use. This has proved invaluable for both students and parents.

Bonus : I don’t teach the exact same material every year and it can be hard to remember what I did and didn’t include. I can pull up the student notebooks to use as a guide while I’m writing the final.

How to Preserve These Wonderful Creations!

I love the way the students take great pride in their notebooks and it’s always a little sad to move onto a new one or to move onto another year. Most students ask if they can save their notebooks so we have experimented with different ways of making that efficient.

Each student has their own Google Drive account, since they are on Google Slides, so we save the notebooks on there first. If students want to keep them after they graduate they can log into their Google Drive from home and download their notebooks.

I have students save the presentations as a PDF file which is easy to scroll through if they ever need to access them in future years. I teach fifth through eighth grade science and my students love to go back and look at their older notebooks. Every once in a while will play scavenger hunt and have them go search for a past topic in their old notebooks. They love that!

Note: At the end of each school year, I download one student notebook from each unit, which works as a great pacing guide for me as I plan for the following year.

There are so many benefits to using digital science notebooks and I hope you realized this throughout this post. I would love to see examples of your student notebooks after you have tried this out!

Just read your digital notebook post. I’m intrigued. When do students work on them? Do they take notes on paper during class and an assignment is to create a summary slide for that day/topic? I like the idea of all their notes in one place and them controlling what it looks like but I don’t want them to be on the computer all the time. We have lab books they need to use and I give them papers which they store in the lab book. Thanks

I use them in place of paper but, that said, I have students that would prefer to work on paper and then photograph their finished product into the notebook. I told them that I don’t mind what they use as long as it is digital at the end of class. Some students love to take notes straight on their iPad into their notebooks, during class, and have no problem. Other students do prefer paper.

Quite often I will do printed out lab sheets that I know are going to get messy that they use during class. I then give them a digital version for them to “clean up“ for homework. Also, I do this if I’m doing a lab that has liquid, since I don’t like their iPads to be out.

I also require the students to always have a folder for any handouts that I give them isn’t necessary to be in their notebooks.

Please feel free to ask any questions and if you need any help with set up, or the mechanics of these notebooks, just let me know!

how to pick and use an assignment notebook

How to pick and use an assignment notebook

Katie Azevedo September 8, 2017 executive function , homework , organization , productivity , routines , time management

google assignment notebook

You’re here because you want to know how to pick and use an assignment notebook. But I’m going to start by giving you the best assignment notebook tip ever: write it down.

Write down assignments. Write down due dates. Write down appointments. Write it all down.  You could have the BEST assignment notebook in the universe, and it will still be horrible if you don’t use it .

Why you need an assignment notebook

Our brains were made for way cooler things than storing boring information like what pages we’re supposed to read for homework and what day we are going to the dentist.

Our brains were made for thinking. And creating. And day dreaming, or whatever.

So when we try to use our brains to store “shallow” information like homework assignments, guess what we end up doing? Yup, having less brain energy to think and create.

How does that affect us in school? We will have difficulty paying attention, learning, remembering, studying, reading, etc. — all because we are using up our background brain energy (our mental bandwidth!) trying to subconsciously remember when the heck our project is due.

What’s the solution?

Write it all down. Everything. Every time.

Here’s where having an assignment notebook or student agenda comes into play. You need one. And you need one that works for you .

Just as we all think and learn differently, we are all going to have unique preferences for what this system looks like and how we use it. But no matter your unique tastes and preferences, the whole point of using an assignment notebook or agenda is to have a place to deposit the information that sucks up our brain power. We all need a place to write down what we can’t forget but don’t need to store.

Why you think you don’t need an assignment notebook

The biggest resistance I hear from students about keeping an assignment notebook is this: “I can remember everything myself.”

Ugh. Please. Just because we CAN do something doesn’t mean we SHOULD. And just because we CAN do something, doesn’t mean it’s GOOD for us.

Even if you CAN remember all your assignments and due dates and tasks and appointments, you must also remember this: trying to store this information in our heads uses up brain energy that we should be using for other things!

I recommend that every student use an assignment notebook that has at least two basic components. After that, the rest is up to you. All assignment notebooks should have at least:

  • a monthly calendar view
  • a daily calendar view with space

The monthly calendar view

This is an essential component to any proper task management / assignment notebook system. A calendar view allows us to see, at a glance, what we have going on for the month. This is where we write down and keep track of anything that is time-sensitive, like appointments, due dates, work hours, practices, games, etc. Basically anything that requires us to BE at a certain place at a certain time goes in this section. We can also use this monthly calendar to mark important dates such as birthdays.

A quick glance at your monthly calendar should essentially alert you to what you’ve got going on in the next week, as well as any due dates that are lurking around the corner.

how to pick and use and assignment notebook monthly view

The daily calendar view

This is the second essential component to any good assignment notebook or student agenda. In the daily view, we write down what we have to do on that particular day . This information isn’t usually time sensitive, other than it needs to get done that day. (Unlike a doctor’s appointment, at 3:00, which you would put on your monthly view.) Here, we write down homework assignments (all of them! Every time! Even if it’s small!), tasks and to-dos. This stuff can be school related, life-related, job related, or personal. It’s important that this section have enough space for you to feel comfortable writing in. If it’s too small, you will probably end up leaving some items off, and that’s very much not the point!

Optional assignment notebook components

Although this part isn’t totally necessary for everyone, I think that most people would benefit from a simple list-like section in the front of their notebook to write down things that pop up and need to be addressed, but that aren’t necessarily tasks or appointments.

This is where you could jot down ideas you have, random things you want to remember for a later time, and projects you want to get to at some point. This could also be where you do your brain dumps .

If you came to this post looking for assignment notebook recommendations, I’m hesitant to offer any because anything I link here will eventually become outdated (you should always have a dated assignment notebook). But if you need a reference point, this is a good one.

Assignment notebook extras

Apart from having an assignment notebook or calendar with a monthly and daily view, you can play with any other components you want. I have a ton of different lives (mom, teacher at one school, teacher at another school, business owner, graduate student, etc. times infinity!!) so I have a lot of other sections in my own personal task management system. But that’s all the fun stuff that you get to play around with and figure out over time.

My last assignment notebook tip is based on the same principle for everything I teach: keep it simple. Start with the basics and only add sections if you need to.

Once you know how to pick and use an assignment notebook, here are my best tips for how to keep track of homework . Seriously helpful.

Assignment Tracker Template For Students (Google Sheets)

Assignment Tracker Template For Students (Google Sheets)

  • 6-minute read
  • 18th May 2023

If you’re a student searching for a way to keep your assignments organized, congratulate yourself for taking the time to set yourself up for success. Tracking your assignments is one of the most important steps you can take to help you stay on top of your schoolwork .

In this Writing Tips blog post, we’ll discuss why keeping an inventory of your assignments is important, go over a few popular ways to do so, and introduce you to our student assignment tracker, which is free for you to use.

Why Tracking Is Important

Keeping your assignments organized is essential for many reasons. First off, tracking your assignments enables you to keep abreast of deadlines. In addition to risking late submission penalties that may result in low grades, meeting deadlines can help develop your work ethic and increase productivity. Staying ahead of your deadlines also helps lower stress levels and promote a healthy study-life balance.

Second, keeping track of your assignments assists with time management by helping prioritize the order you complete your projects.

Third, keeping a list of your completed projects can help you stay motivated by recording your progress and seeing how far you’ve come.

Different Ways to Organize Your Assignments

There are many ways to organize your assignment, each with its pros and cons. Here are a few tried and true methods:

  • Sticky notes

Whether they are online or in real life , sticky notes are one of the most popular ways to bring attention to an important reminder. Sticky notes are a quick, easy, and effective tool to highlight time-sensitive reminders. However, they work best when used temporarily and sparingly and, therefore, are likely better used for the occasional can’t-miss deadline rather than for comprehensive assignment organization.

  • Phone calendar reminders  

The use of cell phone calendar reminders is also a useful approach to alert you to an upcoming deadline. An advantage to this method is that reminders on your mobile device have a good chance of grabbing your attention no matter what activity you’re involved with.

On the downside, depending on how many assignments you’re juggling, too many notifications might be overwhelming and there won’t be as much space to log the details of the assignment (e.g., related textbook pages, length requirements) as you would have in a dedicated assignment tracking system.

  • Planners/apps

There are a multitude of physical planners and organization apps for students to help manage assignments and deadlines. Although some vow that physical planners reign superior and even increase focus and concentration , there is almost always a financial cost involved and the added necessity to carry around a sometimes weighty object (as well as remembering to bring it along with you).

Mobile organization apps come with a variety of features, including notifications sent to your phone, but may also require a financial investment (at least for the premium features) and generally will not provide substantial space to add details about your assignments.

  • Spreadsheets

With spreadsheets, what you lose in bells and whistles, you gain in straightforwardness and customizability – and they’re often free! Spreadsheets are easy to access from your laptop or phone and can provide you with enough space to include whatever information you need to complete your assignments.

There are templates available online for several different spreadsheet programs, or you can use our student assignment tracker for Google Sheets . We’ll show you how to use it in the next section.

  • Digitize Paper-Based Assignments with Gradescope

by Joe Olivier | May 2, 2024 | How-tos

A professor speaks in front of a class of adult learners.

“Grading is my favorite part of being a professor,” said no professor ever.

While the principles and practices of “un-grading” have received attention recently, most teachers–and institutions for that matter–require grades as a means of evaluating student learning and communicating to stakeholders about student performance.

Increasingly, instructors and departments at the University of Chicago have adopted tech tools, such as Gradescope , to make grading workflows more efficient. Gradescope is an online grading tool that simplifies the process of assessing both scanned, pen-and-paper assignments and digital assessments.

This post will focus on digitizing traditional pen-and-paper assignments such as quizzes, exams, and problem sets. A future post will focus separately on programming assignments and online assignments in Gradescope.

Gradescope at the University of Chicago

While any department may benefit from Gradescope’s affordances, departments such as mathematics, computer science, statistics, economics, biology, and chemistry are some of the biggest users of Gradescope at UChicago. The most popular types of assignments are variable length (homework and problem sets), fixed length (quizzes and exams), and programming assignments.

Hannah Lant , Assistant Instructional Professor of Chemistry, teaches large enrollment classes and uses Gradescope for managing paper-based exams. She points out that Gradescope combines “the traditional benefits of paper-based exams” with the advantages of grading digitally. Graders working on one platform and using shared rubrics tend to produce better feedback, according to Lant. Gradescope also generates valuable statistics that can be used to discover where students encounter the most challenges. “If you’re a data freak, Gradescope is really awesome,” according to Lant.

In addition to saving time, creating consistency, and leveraging data, instructors who use Gradescope can also limit students’ use of generative AI tools by administering exams during class.

Supported Paper-Based Assignment Types

Gradescope supports the following assignments which are pen-and-paper based:

  • Exam/Quiz : This type of assignment is for fixed-length assignments that rely on a template that you provide, such as an exam or quiz. By default, instructors or TAs scan students’ work.
  • Homework/Problem Set : This type of assignment is for variable-length assignments which do not require a template. By default, students upload their work as a PDF or use their device’s camera with the Gradescope app.
  • Bubble Sheets : Similar to Scantron, this is an assignment type that is completely multiple choice. Students use the Gradescope Bubble Sheet Template to fill in their answers, and after scanning, the submissions can be graded automatically against a key that you provide.

Paper-Based Assignment Workflow

The workflow for these types of assignments in Gradescope looks like this:

  • Create assignment in Gradescope : Select the appropriate assessment and adjust the settings to your liking. For example, consider enabling anonymous grading to reduce the potential for bias.
  • Create assignment in Canvas : If you want to pass grades back to Canvas from Gradescope, create an assignment in Canvas and link it to the Gradescope assignment. For details on how to do this, see “Post Grades to Canvas” in our knowledge base article on Gradescope for faculty .
  • Scan student work : Depending on the type of assignment, you or your students will scan their work.
  • Grade submissions : Add a pre-built rubric or begin building one dynamically in the app. While grading, you can annotate student work, re-use previous comments, and assign points. You can also collaborate with TAs and graders for quicker grading, and if you wish, grade on a per-question basis.
  • Send and export grades : When you’re finished grading, you can post the graded student work back to Canvas. If you want students to review your markups and/or rubric items, you can publish the graded assignments in Gradescope for their review.
  • View analytics : See questions and rubric-level statistics to better understand what your students know and identify common stumbling blocks.

Gradescope has become a valuable asset to many faculty and departments at UChicago. It’s reshaping the grading landscape, especially for courses with large enrollments. Both instructional staff and students appreciate how Gradescope merges the familiarity of paper exams with the efficiency of digital grading. If you’d like to learn more about Gradescope and how to use it, please get in touch with UChicago ATS.
