We have the full version of Edulastic at Vantage. You log in with your Google credential. This formative and summative assessment tool syncs with your Google Classroom roster and allows you to create or select assessments. With the SnapQuiz feature, turn a paper assessment into a digital one.
IMPORTANT NOTE WHEN ASSIGNING YOUTUBE VIDEOS
Google Classroom teachers have the ability to APPROVE Youtube videos. You can assume that almost all Youtube videos will NOT be approved for Vantage students. As you are selecting video content, click the Approve button in the blue bar.

← A video that is approved...
Any type of file can be moved to Google Drive. You can create files in drive or upload files to Drive. For example, a scanned copy of a section of a textbook that is now a PDF can be uploaded to the Drive and then shared out via Classroom.
If you are totally overwhelmed with moving your curriculum online, know this... you can't do online exactly what you did before. It is not like converting a word doc to PDF. You're classroom does not work like that. This is a shift in how teaching and learning will occur. Please take some time to look at this resource from John Spencer.
