Overview
Create a rubric and give quick audio or text feedback on students' writing. Supports student revisions and Google Classroom.
Use your own rubric to keep track of reviews and revisions on each of your students documents.

Teachers can create and distribute rubrics to their students who can see this rubric while they work on their assignment. Teachers or Peers can markup a document, using their rubric, to provide specific feedback about what the student did well and what they need to improve on. Reviewers can also provide audio and textual feedback.

The Rubric Manager is the central component of docASSIST which allows selection, creation, editing, sharing, and archiving of custom made rubrics. This manager also allows Google Classroom users to create an assignment and push it to their Classroom using a familiar interface to Google's.

docASSIST also has a draft saving feature which will take a snapshot of the document as it currently is and save the snapshot as a PDF to your Google Drive. You can save as many drafts as you want and they will automatically be versioned and time stamped on the document.

Users can also grade documents by giving a point value to each category from their rubric. This grading is saved to a Google Spreadsheet inside of the users Google Drive. For Google Classroom users, there is an option to push a grade to Google Classroom by selecting the class, assignment, and student you would like to give a grade to.

When searching for a rubric tool for Google Doc, I saw a few people recommend this. But in reality, when I tried making the rubric in the program, it didn't make the type of rubric table that I would normally need. I also couldn't find much help on the website (http://www.aboutus.assistments.org/site-help.php) or help section of the app, to answer the questions I needed answered.

Hi Heather, While docASSIST is provided by ASSISTments, there is a separate help page for docASSIST itself. It can be found here: https://sites.google.com/site/assistmentsfeedbacktool/ I hope this helps. If you are having trouble using any features or want to request functionality, please send an email to docassist@wpi.edu. Thank you, Nick

This tool can be kind of buggy, but here are the good points: + You can customize a rubric for whatever traits you're looking at + You can save multiple rubrics + It creates a summary of your feedback, which can be updated + There is an add-on for both reviewer and reviewee + Feedback is referenced as a bookmark that hyperlinks Problems I ran into: - Rubric names with special characters won't load, can't be deleted - Some edits cause the summary to fail - There isn't a user manual - You can delete comments but new comments do not reflect the deleted sequence - There doesn't seem to be a way to export comments

I cannot use my custom rubric. If this worked, it would be helpful. Otherwise, I will not use it.

Hi Laurie, can you please elaborate on that? Going to docASSIST -> Rubric Setup will allow you to create your custom rubrics. Feel free to get in touch with us, the docASSIST team at docassist@wpi.edu to voice your comments and concerns regarding the add-on!
