Now you can see your student’s drafting process and how he has edited his writing. Another great Google feature is the Revision History. (File/Revision History) You can see changes made as well as return to a former version of the document. (Very helpful if a student inadvertently erases a paragraph!) Using these Google features will provide a more comprehensive overview of your students’ writing for formative and summative assessments.
