Campus Learning makes scoring Google submissions easy

Goodbye Google Classroom! Now you can do it all with Campus Learning.  

I used Google Classroom with sixth graders. There were things I liked about it and things I didn’t like. I didn’t like how hard it was to implement standards-based grading. How could I align an assignment to more than one standard and provide scores for each standard separately? Google Classroom also made me use points for everything. If you use standards-based grading and want your score to align to multiple standards, you have to add them up instead and figure out a different way to communicate different scores. If your district uses something other than points, what do you do then? I also didn’t like the double entry of scores. Not only is double entry double the work, but it adds another opportunity to make mistakes.    Continue reading “Campus Learning makes scoring Google submissions easy”
