ITL Assessments - Wondering if anyone can share what you use for Information Technology & Literacy type assessments at 4th, 8th and 10th grade. We ware working on creating something in district and looking for good topics/assessments to build around.  We have standards already set at each level so looking for what others use for assessments to show growth in those areas.  Thanks...

We use - http://www.nextgenassessments.com/  for our 8th grade...  are your standards different than the ISTE standards?  are they more specific "can do" statements?  I created a digital driver's license course for our 6th graders based on kentucky's - https://otis.coe.uky.edu/DDL/launch.php

Chromebook Help Desk log - anyone have good examples of some kind of Google Form or Spreadsheet log you use when students come to your help desk with a Chromebook issue?  Looking for some ideas but don't really know what I'm looking for. :)

Aides manage our intake process and then report stuff on a spreadsheet so the Assistant Principal can see and follow up with parents where needed.  Currently using a few spreadsheets and a database for this (Distribu-Q) and looking to streamline.  Please share any workflows you use...

Doctopus/Goobric Curiousity - I haven't tried this yet when working with Google Classroom, but if you have a Classroom where you've added a co-teacher (let's say a Special Ed Teacher) -- Can that Special Ed teacher go to an assignment for a student, run Doctopus/Goobric and issue one rubric (let's say modified for spec ed students) while the main classroom teacher uses Doctopus/Goobric with a second rubric for all students that don't need the modifications?  So wondering if you can use 2 different rubrics with the same assignment for a given class? Again - I haven't tested yet. Just wondering if that would work.
