  2. 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…

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. Copy & Paste parts of essay to easily check for plagiarism

    Copy and Paste parts of student work to easily check for plagiarism. It would great if we could highlight and copy a suspicious sentence/s and paste them in google or whichever site to check for plagiarism. As it stands, we have to close out of the grading app, and retrieve it from a different page.

  11. Store Rubric Free Comments

    It would be nice to be able to store my rubric free comments and have access to them for every writing assignment I grade. For example, lately I've been using comments such as "Provide context for this quote: when and where does this occur" or "transition needed".

  12. More Report Ideas for Errors

    This is a related suggestion to the "Customizable drop and drag comments for common mistakes" and the one wanting reports/counts of errors. If there were reusable error comments (drag-drop or maybe a drop down list in the existing error pop-up dialog with an option to add new), then reports would be possible. I would love a report similar to the "aggregate rubric results" that would group students and their text by error. I would then be able to quickly grab the "run-on sentence group" for a quick mini-lesson in the corner.

  13. Distributions and excerpts by SECTION

    I would love to have the distributions & excerpts report to be able to be filtered by section. That way I have ready made groups for remediation for each class. And exemplars that are specific to each class.

  14. PDFs of reports

    Hello,

    I am really excited about the possibility of this program. Are the reports available as PDF's, or will this feature be available in the next version? I printed out the reports, but they look like printed out webpages...

  15. Copy CC Rubrics to Different Grade Levels

    It would be nice to be able to copy a common core rubric to another grade level. Obviously I would need to change the descriptors for each grade level, but it is common for me to have a similar assignment for each grade level that would have the same rubric elements attached to the same standard just at different grade levels.

  17. Student login/dashboard to review graded essays using Google Apps account

    Allow students to identify themselves via their school-provided Google Apps accounts. They would then be able to view their full essay history. Could even add some new data reports to show students how they performed relative to their peers on each assignment.

  18. Display total number of Error Marks per essay in the data reports

    The data reporting system does not currently report any Error Mark data. At least add the number of errors marked per essay. Average/Median number of errors marked for a particular assignment would be nice, too.

  19. Essay Docs for Collaboration

    Make essays sharable (word?) so that multiple teachers can grade portions of the essays. For example, a Social Studies teacher might grade for content, and the English teacher might grade for grammar.

    Oof. That’s a pretty cool idea, but also fairly difficult. I love the idea of encouraging more cross-department coordination and common assignments, but I think I’ll need to see more momentum swing this way before undertaking the big effort this would require. There just aren’t enough teachers out there that would take advantage of this kind of collaborative feature.

    So, you know, just change teaching culture and curriculum in America and then this one will become a no-brainer!

  20. Moving documents to another assignment

    Be able to move a student document to a new assignment if they accidentally upload a document to the wrong assignment.

    Ah, this is a great suggestion!

    I think this feature makes sense. I don’t want teachers to have to go through extra hassle if a kid screws up the assignment upload.

    However, part of our job in the 21st-century is to develop competent digital citizens.

    Turning in the assignment to the wrong link should be viewed as being equivalent to not turning it in at all. That kid blew it, the paper is now late, there are consequences. In fact, I think there’s value in making the kid go back and do the submit correctly, even if it’s after the due date.

    So even if this feature is implemented, I’d still recommend that teachers make their kids jump through that hoop to get it right.
