Tests grading themselves


At our Last PD, some of us were interested in how we could give assessments that would self grade. A colleagues mentioned “Exam View” to me. I have not explored it yet but wanted to get the information to you just in case you get to explore it before me.


Thanks for sharing this information!


If you have not recently looked at Google Forms - Quiz format, you ought to. I have found it to be quite easy to convert (one question at a time) a word document test to G form. I have also used it to give Free Response questions. Extra credit may also be given by assigning no point value to a question at the time of building, then after students have taken the test on the form, go back and assign points out of zero (Ex: 5/0).


A second thought on self grading tests. Google forms can quite easily be used as a separate answer document. Simply put numbers for questions and answer choices A, B, C, D, … If by chance an error is discovered in the key after students have taken the test, simply change the key and the students’ tests are rescored.


I use Google forms as well for assessments and find them to very convenient!
