      I use Google forms for my tests/quizzes, parent contact information, and other assignments. You just need to attach the script Flubaroo ( to the form, and you can have it grade the assignments for you. It also provides a nifty line item analysis, so you can easily determine the problems students struggled to answer correctly. Flubaroo will email students their score plus the questions they missed. You can request a key to be sent as well. For kids who don't have an email, they just use mine. I just show them the results in class.

        Do you use Edmodo? You can create quizzes on Edmodo which it grades for you--at least the objective questions.

            Richard, I personally have not used Edmodo on a tablet; I don't own a tablet. I will admit it works best on computers/laptops, but my students accessed it on a variety of devices including smartphones. One or two did have tablets.

              Thank you Katie. I enjoyed reading your blog. I plan on using the paperrater site.

              Thanks Teri. I have used Edmodo, but I've never added assignments. Don't the students need email accounts for Edmodo? My students are 10 and 11 year olds.

                Stephanie, Edmodo asks for an email when the students enter your class code, but it is NOT a required field. I just double-checked by signing in as a make-believe student in one of my classes.

                  Thanks Katie for the info on the free site.

                    I would suggest the following app:



                    It looks especially easy to use with elementary students. It allows you to assign which is paperless and they can take a photo of their work and send it to you.

                      I use Edmodo ! It is an online classroom that includes quizzes! Worth checking out!

                        I use Edmodo with laptops but I also use iPad. The app for Edmodo is a little different from the online site but it works.

                          I like GradeCam There are free and paid versions. The students use a scantron-type paper to respond and scan it with the GradeCam app. Scores reported instantly!

                            Re: Edmodo -- I really like the site, and use it a fair amount, BUT I had a lot of problems last school year with their quizzes, which I tried to use two different times. Both times there were bugs and server problems. Good news? Edmodo support responds pretty quickly. Not so good? I couldn't trust the online quiz results, and eventually decided I could not count the Edmodo quiz as a regular grade.

                              RE: Edmodo...I've used Edmodo assignments and quizzes for two years and I've never had a problem. At this point, I put all objective (multiple choice/matching) quizzes on Edmodo. The students can take them in class, in the media center, or at home. Now the only quizzes I need to grade are the essay questions.

                                Check out My Access, which is an online essay grading program we use. It has some kinks, but overall is a useful tool.
