If you are looking for a new way to incorporate digital assessments (TKES Standard 5-Assessment Strategies) in your classroom consider trying Google Forms. With the Flubaroo add-on, you can create digital assessments that will quickly grade multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank questions for you. One of the great aspects of Flubaroo is that it creates a breakdown of your assessment which demonstrates what percentage of your students answered each question correctly (TKES Standard 6-Assessment Uses).
