πŸ“ The Road to Google Mastery: Merging onto the Google Classroom Expressway’s Seventh Point of Interest Tips and Tricks

In part 7 of our All About Google Classroom Series, we are going to be covering all of the hidden tips and tricks of Google Classroom!

Grade Categories

By default, when you create an assignment in Google Classroom, it is set to 100 points. By creating grade categories, you can set a default point total. For example, if you know that all of your quizzes are going to be 10 points, you can set a quiz grade category and have the default points be 10. That way, when you create a quiz assignment in Google Classroom and set the quiz grade category, it will automatically Set it to 10 points.

Linking to a Topic

When you create a topic in Google Classroom, they show up as sections in the Classwork section. But did you know they each have their own unique link? You can grab this link and share it with students either via email or announcement in Google Classroom and when they click on the link it takes them directly to that topic section in Google Classroom! To do this, click on the vertical ellipsis next to a topic section header and choose copy link. Then paste that link in an email or announcement to students. (This is also true for assignments in the Classwork section of Google Classroom.)

Assigning to Specific Students

When you are creating an assignment in Google Classroom, you can choose to assign it to the whole class or a specific group of students. To do this, when you are in the assignment editor, on the right-hand side under β€œFor”, by default it is set to all students. Click on that and you can uncheck all students and choose the specific students you want that assignment to go to. This is great for group collaboration and differentiation.

That does it for our The Road to Google Mastery: Merging onto the Google Classroom Expressway Series!
