"In this talk I’ll demonstrate the Fast Tracking Feedback System developed for Loughborough College (LSIS grant funded). The system uses Google Spreadsheets and Documents to improve consistency and speed up the delivery of student feedback. Using custom interfaces created in Google Apps Script tutors enter grades/feedback into a Google Spreadsheet. The information is then used to generate individual and personalised feedback sheets shared to students as Google Documents."
