I've been using Google Classroom to issue and mark assignments for several years now. Over that time I have developed a detailed workflow which meets the needs of my learners and my awarding organisation.
The workflow also meets my needs in that it's efficient and allows me to keep track of my learners' progress.
To give you some context, I mostly teach initial teacher training at level 3, so my learners are adults. My awarding organisation is City and Guilds.
That being said, this workflow is appropriate for most learners who are required to research and type assignments as part of the assessment process.
Watch the video below to see the workflow in action, both from a student and teacher perspective.
