Google just announced that “Google Assignments” will go live in G Suite For Education on August 11th:
Assignments is an add-on application for learning management systems (LMSs) that helps you distribute, analyze, and grade student work with G Suite for Education.
Assignments makes Google Docs and Google Drive compatible with your LMS for file submissions. You can use Assignments to save time distributing and grading student work, and analyze student submissions with originality reports to ensure authenticity.
I’m not entirely sure, but it looks to me like it will make it easier to transfer grades between Google Classroom and your Learning Management System (in our class, it’s Infinite Campus).
Again, I’m not sure, but it seems to me like it could take the place of Grade Transferer , which also makes that…transfer happen (see Video: Here’s How To Transfer Google Classroom Grades To Your Learning Management System).
I’ve embedded a video about it that Google made last year when they announced its beta.
I’m adding this post to A Beginning List Of The Best Resources For Learning About Google Classroom.
Please let me know if I am correct in my understanding of what it does, or if I am, once again, clueless…
