how to setup your google classroom account for student

You can set up an account in Google Classroom in a matter of minutes. Here are the instructions on how to set your class up:

 

1 ) Go to Google Classroom’s website: https://classroom.google.com/ you can use the Classroom if you log in through Google Apps for Education account. If your Google login is your school email address, that is perfect. Alternatively, you can use your Gmail account to directly access Google Classroom.

 

2 ) Click on the “+” button in the top right to make your first class. You can find it next to your email. Then, click the “Create Class”.

 

3 ) Add a name for your class and a section. The name of your class should be the title of the class. The section should be able to determine which of those classes it is. Then, click “Create” to continue. Once you have done this, Google Classroom will have multiple prompts appear on your screen the first time you create a class. You can choose to follow these prompts to get a quick tour around .

 

4 ) As soon as you have created your class, students will be able to start joining it, but before doing so, you can get creative and have some fun with the look of your classroom. Feel free to change the class theme at the right side of the header. A gallery of headers will open up and you can choose one to spice your classroom up.

 

5 ) Furthermore, before letting students join your class, you can add details to your “About” tab to provide some basic information about your class such as a description of the course, name of the course, teacher’s email and the room where it meets. You can also add materials by attaching them, such as a classroom management plan, a syllabus or other things that students might need to refer to all throughout the school year.

 

6 ) Your students are now ready to sign up for the Classroom. This is actually one of the easiest parts. Have them log in to the Classroom with their school Google account and click the “+” just like you did. They will be prompted to provide a class code, which you can give them. You can show it on a projector, write it on the board and more. As soon as they enter, they are in.

 

Personalizing the Account :

After setting up your class and getting your students to join, you have a fully functioning Google Classroom. However, you would not want to stop there. There are many things that you can do in your Classroom. These include:

 

Adding an assignment: Marking a new assignment is almost the same as an announcement, but it will have a due date. You can write the assignment’s title, a description and add some file attachments if necessary. Then, specify when the due date is. On the other hand, in the students’ accounts, there will be extra notifications on class assignments, reminding the students when something is in its due date, or when it is late.

 

Adding an announcement: This account personalization will be a good way of communicating with your class to give them updated information. Just click the Announcement button and a message will be displayed to your class. You may even put attachments from your Google Drive or otherwise. You may also provide links and add YouTube videos. If you are assigning an activity outside the Google Classroom, you will be able to link an announcement to it so that there will be a record of it in your class.

 

Grading an assignment: After adding an assignment and your students have handed their assignment in via the Google Classroom, it is now time to grade it. You just need to click the assignment title to open it. Click on the name of the student to show any attached files that you have to view. This will reveal a text field in which you would be able to type a comment to the student. The Classroom flags any assignment as done, not done, done late or late. Classroom will not change the grades of students when their assignments are submitted late, but you can do this manually by clicking on the grade.

 

Once you have viewed the assignments submitted by your students, you can assign a grade by clicking the No Grade button. If you desire to change the grade or number of points to an assignment, you will see the points section at the top of the page; click to change the points. Another great personalization in Google Classroom is that you can also download the work of students to your Google Drive. Just use the button at the top of the screen of assignment. Here, you can also view the Google Drive folder where the works of your students are stored.

 

Make sure you click the Return button (blue color button) to finalize all the grading that you have just done.

 

Note: Once the students pass or send their work in the Classroom, they cannot make any changes to those files until you return the works to them after grading them.

 

Managing students: From the Students tab, you will see many options and you can choose actions you want, so as to interact with the student accounts. You are capable of managing permissions. You can give students access to comment and post within the assignment area. This can be a great way to make your students more involved. The envelope icons will let you send emails to each student, if the Gmail is available through their Google accounts in school. As you check multiple or individual students, you will be able to get them removed from the class. You can send them an email or mute them from commenting. This feature can be used rather effectively to manage the classroom properly to ensure the classroom does not get abused by certain individuals.

 

Providing feedback: There are many places where you can provide feedback. You would want to think about where you want to put it. You can leave a comment in the attached file to the assignment or, you can put it on every student’s assignment, which will only be visible to the student. You can also leave it on the assignment area as you click the Return button, which can be seen by all students.

 

Adding a description to assignment: Assignments in Google Classroom will be a good point of reference for the absent students and for kids to see their grades, wondering why they get what they get. When you spell out the details, it will be easy for students to refer later. It also makes progress reporting a lot easier for students to keep track of their own progress by ensuring they don’t lose any feedback from their teacher.
