Google Assignment - Moodle LTI for Collecting and Grading Student Google Docs
Posted by Nathan Lind on 22 April 2019 04:47 PM

Google Assignment, formerly known as Google Course Kit, is a free toolkit that allows instructors to use Google Docs and Drive to create and collect assignments, give feedback to students, and share course materials within Moodle. LTI stands for Learning Technology Integration, which is similar to a plug-in.

New features with updated Google Assignment:

  • Student copies. When you create new coursework, Assignments automatically makes a unique copy for each student in the class.

  • New – check for originality. Generate originality reports on student work to help you check and confirm citations. *optional - instructors would need to activate this feature and students can opt in (or not)

  • Automatic permissions management. Assignments adjusts Doc permissions to prevent student access during grading. *quick turnaround for grading may be desired

  • Comment bank. Save frequently used feedback, then pull it up from your bank with just a few keystrokes.

  • New – apply rubrics. Keep grading transparent with rubrics, which display alongside student work.

  • Autosave. Drive saves all your changes so you don’t need to worry about losing work.
