  2. Numerical value attached to rubric

    Not to have to manually enter grades but to instead have a numerical value attached to the rubric criteria.

  3. Resizeable sentence-level highlights

    Oftentimes something like a piece of evidence will be more than one sentence long or conversely an in-text citation might be less than a sentence. But the grading app only allows for single-sentence highlighting. Allow users to drag the highlight start and end points as needed to cover multiple sentences or just a portion of a single sentence.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. Peer Editing Workshop

    Peer Editing Workshop
    Create a feature whereby students can share their work with a few selected students for a peer review. Teach can create the review questions and criteria. This will give students a chance to think critically about the same type of writing they are expected to do.

  13. 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…

  15. Essay Tagger as a Google Docs Add-On

    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.

  16. Group or Partner Assignments Need Separate Name & Email Options

    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!

  19. "Print All Graded Papers for This Assignment" Option

    If there was a "Print all graded papers" option for each assignment, I could more easily return work to my students to work on with pens and highlighters before they go back to type revisions.

  20. Including Links for Independent Study

    Posting links to videos or website for students to explore for independent study. For example, if a student has major issues with run-on sentences or needs review using transitional phrases, a link to a website or video for their independent study could be included in the overall comments.
