Google Docs Add On For Scoring Online Writing


Google Docs has an add-on called Orange Slice that allows teachers to grade their students' writing using an online rubric that is easily customized.

The Orange Slice add-on is especially useful when grading writing assignments in Google Classroom,

but Google Classroom is not necessary to use the Orange Slice add-on.

To get the Orange Slice add-on:

  • Either create a new Google Doc or open an existing Google Doc

  • Click on Add-ons in the menu

  • Click on Get Add-ons

  • In the search box, type orangeslice

  • Choose to add the Teacher Rubric version of OrangeSlice

  • A tutorial for using the Orangeslice add-on to create and use online rubrics is below
