Side Study™ can be used to supplement your class or completely replace expensive online platforms from publishers. There’s so much to share! Learn more and see every feature at

Side Study is a complete solution that allows you to create, assign, review, and grade assignments for any subject and age level from elementary to college right from Google Docs. First, you create a custom assignment using the “Teacher” add-on and then students complete it using the “Student” add-on where, if you choose, they can give and receive help from their classmates. Detailed data on their engagement and answers are sent to a report where you can enter feedback and grades, check for plagiarism, and find out where students need more help.

Most importantly, the “Guide on the Side” feature simulates you being there with each student to provide guidance while they answer questions. In a Side Study assignment, students aren’t alone, but have you and their classmates for help, along with videos, text, drawings, webpages, or any other resources you add to the assignment!

This is a great way to write tests for my class. I love that I get lots of feedback after the student takes the test. There are options to create short response or multiple choice questions. Students can get feedback from me and make corrections. I just started so I am getting a free upgrade so I am interested what I will lose when that is over. This is something that I will continue to use in my class.
