Using Flubaroo

Step 1: How to Create an Assignment


  Open a new Google Form.

If you are using a Google Spreadsheet, you can add a secondary form by selecting Tools > Create a form from the menu:

If not, go into your Google Drive account and create a new Form directly by clicking on the red NEW button. Place your pointer over More and then click Google Forms:



Once this form is created, you can create questions that will be included in your assignment. It is recommended that you develop a way to identify each student (such as first name, last name, or student ID).
When you finish loading the questions, save the form.
Step 2: Making an Answer Key
Open up the form as a participant/student would. Complete the form with the correct answers and submit it. Mark this document in a way that it is identified as the answer key to distinguish it from student responses.

Step 3: Assigning the Form


  Place a link to the Form in an email, site, or word document that is shared with students. All responses will be displayed in the spreadsheet in your Google account:

Step 4: Grading the Submissions
  To find responses, click Responses at the top, and then click on the spreadsheet icon:

Flubaroo must be installed to complete grading.  Go to the Add-ons menu in the Spreadsheet, and click on Get Add-ons. Once you select this, the Add-Ons store will show you various add-ons for download and installation.

Type Flubaroo in the search box at the top. Select the blue +FREE button. You can also find the items listed in the Education category from the drop-down menu.

After you select this, you will be asked to give Flubaroo access to data in your spreadsheet. It will also ask for permission to send emails on your behalf to students. Click the Accept button.

The Add-ons menu will now display Flubaroo.

If you wish to grade submissions at this time, just select Grade Assignment.

Flubaroo will ask you questions like:

  • If any of the questions should not be graded.
  • Which questions are used for the purpose of student identification
  • (e.g. name, student id, email).
  • Which one of the submission (yours) should be used as the answer key.
Flubaroo will then quickly grade your assignments.



Step 5: Review the Grades


Flubaroo will give you several options after the completion of an assignment.
You can

  • Email each student his/her grades
  • Review a summary of responses
  • Regrade the assignment again (use this option if some students were not included in the first grading or you wish to omit a question that was frequently missed)

There are several options when preparing an email for students. You can include an answer key so students can review the correct answers. Instructors can also add a message to the student addressing specific items. The email will include his/her individual total score and performance on each question. The ability to email the students a report will only be available if you have added a question asking for an email address on the form.
View Report will show a summary of the grading. The report will include the distribution of grades as a histogram, and a choice to email yourself a copy of the report.
