When I opened up my Google Classroom to create a new assignment today, I noticed a couple of changes that I wanted to share with you.
First, the Assignment screen has a new layout. The title and directions are where they used to be, but now all of the options for the assignment are gathered in a sidebar on the right.
I love how all these options are in one place so that you don’t miss any of them!
You can still assign to multiple classes and students, set a point value, due date and topic. There are a couple of new options there as well. You can now create and use Rubrics within Google Classroom. Rubrics can be scored or unscored. If a rubric is scored, students see their scores when you return their assignments. A future Tech Tip will showcase this feature.
