Type of Assessment Tool: OrangeSlice Teacher Rubric is a Google Docs add-on that will increase your grading productivity and it professionally presents a scored rubric and grade for your students. It gives an opportunity to automatically insert a rubric within a student’s document. The rubric works very well with Google Classroom as the title of the student's document changes with the grade inserted into it. Most importantly, it increases the teacher’s grading productivity by eliminating repetitive clicks, presenting the rubric selections in an easy-to-use format and presenting the final grades in a consistent, professional format. More time is created for the teacher to provide the needed constructive feedback their students need for success. Fortunately, there is a student version of this rubric called OrangeSlice Student Rubric. Students are able to review their peers' work, make rubric selections and provide written feedback.  The complete bundle of feedback is then presented to the student with a professional appearance.
