Evaluator Add-Ons

To make grading assignments that use Google Docs, Slides, or Sheets as fast and easy as possible, I've developed add-ons that allow teachers to create a list of requirements for each assignment that both students and the teacher can access using a sidebar. Students complete self evaluations. Teachers can require that students obtain peer evaluations from any classmate, or specific classmates. Finally, teachers use the exact same checklist to evaluate the document themselves and a grade is calculated based upon the point value associated with each requirement. Teacher evaluations can be copied over all peer and self evaluations so that students and peer evaluators know which items need to be revisited. Currently the Document add-on is 100% ready to use, the Slideshow add-on is awaiting approval for widespread use, and the Spreadsheet add-on is still working through the initial approval process.

Privacy Policy
All information generated by students is saved within the documents they create or peer evaluate as document properties (metadata that can only be accessed programmatically). Only users with edit access to their documents have access to that data. I do not collect any data from students. I only collect data from teachers that is freely and knowingly provided and only for the purpose of making this add-on work. This data is collected when teachers email me their names and the ID of the assignment spreadsheet they've created so that I can add it to the directory. No data is shared with third parties.

Below is an explanation of each permission:
  • Document Evaluator Specific Scope:
    • View and manage your Google Documents: It's a Document add-on that stores information about the document within the metadata for the slideshow.
  • Slideshow Evaluator Specific Scope:
    • View and manage your Google Slides presentations: It's a Slides add-on that stores information about the slideshow within the metadata for the slideshow.
  • See, edit, create, and delete your spreadsheets in Google Drive: The add-on pulls the location of each teacher's spreadsheet from a master spreadsheet. It pulls the requirements for each assignment from each teacher's "Evaluator" spreadsheet.
    • For the Spreadsheet Evaluator add-on, this scope is also used to store information about he spreadsheet within the metadata for the slideshow.
  • Display and run third-party web content in prompts and sidebars inside Google applications: The evaluation is displayed as a sidebar in the document/slideshow/spreadsheet being evaluated.
Terms of Service
I am providing these add-ons for free out of the kindness of my heart. The Evaluator add-ons are provided "AS IS" and without warranty. Enjoy.
