Tech Newsletter for 2/28


Have you looked at the little gear in Google Classroom when your students turn in their work? Click on the “Done” in the assignment and the gear at the top right will allow you to create a Google Sheet of all the assignments you have graded and returned to students. *You do have to return the assignment before it will show up on the spreadsheet. It will even calculate the average for you as well. Give it a try.  If you aren’t using Google Classroom yet, here’s a quick overview.
