I plan to use Google sheets in my classroom this year. I can keep track of student progress by inputting data from different assessments throughout the school year. I can create graphs to show trends and connect the strategies that work and what I need to change to help my students.
I plan to use Google forms when giving different test or quizzes as well. I really like the fact that I can put the answer key in and the app grades the test/quiz on its own. I would have to go and grade short responses, but the auto check would really cut down on time.
I am giving a beginning of the year survey to my students to record their reading interests so I can get to know them better as readers.
