For the past 3 years, Asher Scott and Elizabeth Shadock have been collaborating with a team of teachers from New York City public high schools and with the cloudLab team to develop a data tool that will help teachers make evidence-informed decisions in the classroom by tracking student skill growth across time. The result of this hard work is Goobric Plus, which will be launched externally at ISTE 2019.
Presenters will demonstrate how Goobric+ extends the possibilities of our wildly popular Goobric add-on, by allowing teachers to set competency goals for students based on rubric spreadsheet data, and to track student success towards these goals across time.
Attendees will participate in a walk-through of the set-up process and view a brief demonstration of how the app works and the varying types of data visualizations it can provide. Using provided ‘dummy data’ attendees will be able to take the web app for a test drive and discover how Goobric+ can help educators prioritize the instruction within their classroom and differentiate based on individual student need. Additionally, this free web app provides a routine protocol for using data to inform classroom planning and instruction. For students, Goobric+ provides clear goals and illustrates the next steps toward success. Like all cloudLab tools, Goobric+ works with your existing GSuite for Education and integrates with Google Classroom.
The cloudLab team at New Visions for Public Schools is a dedicated group of educators turned developers who use their understanding of code to create innovative solutions for teachers using GSuite for Education (GAFE). These solutions are built in the form of add-ons and web apps and are designed to streamline the daily workflow of educators to make their work more manageable and impactful within their schools.
