- Doctopus is now integrated into Google Classroom, so it will “ingest” any Google Classroom assignment. Start with at least one written assignment that involves a Google Doc, Sheet or Slide, and a roster of students who have joined your Classroom.
- Create a Rubric in Google Sheets. Leave Cell A1 blank. If you do not have a rubric created, Goobric will provide you with a sample rubric that can be added to your Google Drive.
- Create a “Rubrics” folder in Google Drive where you can store your rubrics.
- In Google Chrome, download the extension called Goobric Web App Launcher.
- Create a blank Google Sheet, where the Doctopus results can be stored.
- In this blank Google Sheet, install Doctopus through the Add-ons menu (if you haven’t already). Give this Google Sheet a name (something like Assignment Name_Doctopus & Goobric Results).
- From within this Google Sheet, go to the Add-ons menu and launch Doctopus. Doctopus now appears at the right.
- This launches Doctopus. Under Step 1, click “Ingest Google Classroom Assignment.”
- Doctopus pulls all of your Google Classrooms. Click on one that has an assignment.
- Select an Assignment from this Classroom. It pulls the assignment and switches to the Doctopus Assignment Tools window at the right.
- Click the Attach Goobric button at the top right. It pulls up any recent rubics that you have created in Google Sheets. If you don’t see the one you want, navigate to your “Rubrics” folder by clicking the My Drive tab.
- Locate and Select the rubric you want from your Google Drive.
16. Note: In the top right corner, you can either click on the Next>> button and advance to the next student, or click the drop-down menu which gives the names of each student, so you can jump to a specific student name – if you prefer that method.
17. Note: There is a checkbox to "Also email scores to" each student. This is optional.
18. For students who need oral feedback, there is also a Record Audio Comment button (shaded below) where you can record and save an audio comment. You get up to 120 seconds for the audio comment.
19. Click the Submit button and it will grade and automatically advance to the next student.
