A common issue we face in distance learning is students not turning in assignments. I really wish there was a magic bullet that could solve this issue. If one ever appears, I'll be sure to write a blog about it. This blog, though, is about the assignments that do get turned in.
One of my favorite aspects of Google Classroom is the Grading Tool. It allows you to quickly access student work, evaluate it and leave feedback. One annoying part of the tool is having to sift through the student work that wasn't completed while trying to grade the ones that are finished. To easily focus on the work that is finished, click the little arrow next to the Turned in button.
