Coming soon to Google Classroom Teaching & Learning or Education Plus editions, practice sets is an exciting new feature that will help teachers save time and create more interactive, personalised resources.

You can type questions in, or you can import a PDF and select the questions you want to include.

  2. Enter the correct answers or answer choices. You can choose from 4 different answer types. Short answer, single-select, and multi-select allow you to enter correct answers for auto-grading.

Cooperative Learning

Assign practice sets to small groups and encourage students to work together to complete them. This can foster teamwork, communication, and problem-solving skills.


Self-Paced Learning

Give students the option to work on practice sets at their own pace. This can help students take control of their learning and increase motivation and engagement.


Monitor Student Progress

Class insights

One of the most powerful elements of practice sets is the detailed insights dashboard. When reviewing a practice sets assignment, click "Class Insights" to view student responses in detail. You will be able to easily see an overview of individual responses and class trends to help you identify common misconceptions.

Insights

By selecting a question or a student, you'll be able to view individual responses, including all attempts. You can also make changes to student scores and mark any paragraph question types that were not auto-graded before giving your students feedback in the same way as in any other assignment.
