Super Quiz, P.E., TinyTap, Windows8, Math, ELA, Slides Carnival, Instagram, IronMan, March Madness, Form from a Doc



Did you know?

There is an add-on to easily create a Form from a Doc? This add-on in Google Forms allows teachers to take a test that they have created in the past and copy it to a Google Form without the need to toggle between two screens. (Thank you ABMS Tech!)

There is another grading add-on for Google Sheets, similar to Flubaroo, that will let you add comments, so that the grade/score and comments will be sent to the student via email directly?  It is called Super Quiz.  For a fast paced how-to video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbDPh0SMer4&feature=youtu.be


For PE – there is a lesson plan creation tool?  (Thank you April Riley!) https://docs.google.com/a/aisdapps.com/forms/d/1gvOEbsb3EHH5SdC-nL8_0ApWOLWRBz4SRnk_bigfgEM/viewform
