Quantifying Student’s Progress with OrangeSlice Teacher RubricJoin us Saturday, October 29th as Matt Buchanan will join us to share an amazing Google add-on he has created for teachers and students called OrangeSlice. Matt recognized that Google Docs and Classroom were fantastic tools to develop his students’ literacy and writing skills. However, the efficient process seemed to disappear when it was time to grade and present the final grade in a professional format. This inspired him to create a Google Add-on: Teacher Rubric. It dramatically speeds the grading time, presents the grade in a professional format and creates more time to provide students constructive feedback.During his presentation, Matt will demonstrate how to use the OrangeSlice Teacher Rubric to quantify a student’s growth over an assignment. He’ll explain the key rubric categories, demonstrate how a teacher and student work together during the student’s progress towards, and finally completing the assignment. Teacher Rubric captures the communication between the two and presents it in a professional manner which is easy to follow. When the teacher ‘Processes the Grade’ for the final time, the conclusion yields a Student Growth Table which includes each rubric category and a clear, color-coded score breakdown of the student’s progress.Matt Buchanan graduated from Purdue University during the latter part of the last millennium with a BS in mechanical engineering. For the following 15+ years, he held various engineering and sales positions in the automotive and heavy truck industries and obtained 3 U.S. patents. He completed a transition to teaching program in 2011 and began teaching 4th grade followed by middle school science. Finally, he landed a permanent teaching position in northeast Indiana teaching high school science: earth science, physics and AP environmental science. His time spent in elementary education rooted his pedagogy in literacy. Rubrics are a fast and effective method to evaluate and provide direct, student feedback which led to the development and release of the OrangeSlice:Teacher Rubric and Student Rubric add-ons.Remember to follow us on Twitter: #liveclass20More information and session details are at http://live.classroom20.com.
