  1. GRAMMAR TRACKING

    Grammar tracking. If we had a bank of little icons or buttons that could be dragged onto their grammar errors, the types and frequency of mistakes would bare out in the data and we could easily assign differentiated grammar practice accordingly. There is no need to make all students practice fragments if only a few of them struggle. I am currently using a tedious spreadsheet to keep track.

    • Grammar mistake buttons pop up when drawing a red line. Ex. CS=comma splice

      When drawing a red line on an essay, maybe a little box could pop up with common grammar mistakes. Little buttons with abbreviations on them. For ex: CS for comma splice or FS for fragment sentence. This can be helpful for beginning writers, but advanced writers might only get the red line.

      • Separate 1st and 2nd submissions of an assignment

        Separate first and second submissions so that their name appears in the proper place when looking at aggregate results under "show students." In other words, if I want to know which kids need improvement, I can't immediately tell because their first submission results show up in the "needs improvement" section. Maybe they passed it in the second submission.

        • Grammarly and TurnITin

          I currently have grammarly and turn it in as a faculty member. It would be great if we had the option to have a similar service through this. For example, perhaps there is a side bar indicating plagiarism % and perhaps links the document in grammarly ? This would save me time so I could spend more time on the content of the essay.

          • grmr.me url (embedded grammar lesson vids)

            Create little buttons with the grmr.me urls on them so that we can easily click and add urls for students to either link to, or to cut and paste. This way students can easily access quick grammar lessons pertaining to their particular mistakes.

            • Side by side grading for multiple submissions

              Allow me to have a side-by-side view of each student's first and final submission. I want to grade them both in the same assignment so I can re-use the comments and it would be great to see if they made the corrections based on my feedback. Plus, I wouldn't have to regrade all of the parts!

              • Separate the aggregate results of first and final submission.

                Allow me to separate the data from first submission and final submission. I want them to turn both into the same code, that way I can easily flip back and forth between them, and also can use my comments for each. But as it stands, the aggregate results are inaccurate because they include more than 1 submission for each kid. So maybe they didn't nail a thesis statement in the first, and they got half points in the second.

                    • Mechanics & Syntax Menu

                      The worst part about rubrics from a student's perspective is that he/she sees nothing actually on the essay itself. While I LOVE the fact that you include that option, perhaps, as many have already suggested, there was a selection index of some sort. So if I highlighted a spelling error on the essay, I could check a box for spelling. THEN, at the end of the essay a student could have a list indicating their errors (similar to what you already do with the passages listed with errors) and see "whoa, my Achilles heel is passive. Look at all those…

                            Essay Tagger needs to be an Add-On for Google Docs. There's one called Grading Help that is similar, but Essay Tagger works better. If it were an Add-On, teachers could create a bunch of key shortcuts to add pre-loaded comments to student essays in Docs quickly and easily! It should also have the same "return via email" feature.

                              I have partner papers fairly regularly. I would love to be able to put both students' names on a graded essay so that I could email it to both separately. This idea would also work well if you were grading projects on this site... which I haven't actually thought of until now, but wow, that would be AWESOME to do (projects are actually easier to grade from a rubric perspective)... now let me go figure out how to do that!

                                        It would be great to be able to view all of the grades you've given for an assignment in one place.

                                        • Show assignment codes on the assignment page

                                          Show the assignment code on the assignment page. It can be difficult to find the code after you've created the assignment.
