Google Classroom is a very powerful framework for enabling the teacher and student interaction on a Google Apps domain. Many education domains are deploying the Classroom. If you are one of these domains GAT now allows Admins to audit Google Classrooms.
To enable the audit feature in GAT you need to ensure the following setting is enabled
In the Google Apps Admin console, select ‘Apps’, ‘Google Apps’ and then’ Classroom’.
Under ‘Data access’ in ‘Classroom’ ensure that the checkbox for ‘Classroom API’ is ticked.
Next, ensure GAT+ has the extra access rights it requires (Info here)
GAT+ will now need some time to complete the scan. After the scan is finished (depending on your domain size this may take several hours).
Each of the sections provides the admin with a greater in-depth overview of the ‘Classrooms’ on your domain.
Classrooms – Gives a view to all courses created on the domain such as All the Course IDs, Name, Section, State (active or archived), Short description, Created by who and time when it was created, also when the classroom was last active.
Selecting the ‘Actions’ button gives a better insight into the selected course.
By selecting the General tab we see the basic information for this course, such as CourseID, Name, Short Description, Join code, Room and so on.
In the People tab, we can see the members of this class. The names of the teachers and the list of students assigned to this class.
In the Assignments option, admin can view all assignments assigned to this particular class, with all details related to it.
The ‘eye icon’ below the Actions tab will display all of the course work details.
Course work details will provide a general overview of this particular ‘Assignment’.
Classwork will give the admins an overview of all the course work created on the domain.
A search filter can be applied for each of the fields and search conducted.
The toggle button requests a fresh scan so admin can view the newest classwork added in Google Classrooms
Classwork Submissions – gives an overview of all the classroom submissions done by the students, by providing individual information for each submission such as student name, the state of the work when turned in or created, also what type it was and dates for when it was created and updated.
Under the ‘Actions’ is the detailed information for the selected course work.
The Play button will start a new scan for Course work, Submissions, and guardians.
All this data can be exported into a spreadsheet.
Teachers and Students – gives a list view of all teachers assigned as Teachers in Google Classrooms or Students assigned to a classroom.
Additional information such as Active or Archived classes and assignments set up by the teacher in the last 30 days.
