Student Data Notebooks

Many elementary campuses are exploring ways for students to track their own data and set goals electronically.  I spent some time experimenting with it this summer and have created a sample "Goal Setting Notebook" in Google Slides.  

Here are some example slides:

By creating tables, students can enter numerical data or color code cells to track growth.

Students can even insert pictures of digital or paper work into their "notebook".

To view the entire sample notebook I created, click HERE.  You're welcome to make a copy of it and modify for your students.  Or click this link to automatically make a copy in your drive.  

Now for the big question... how do I get a copy of this to my students?  Here are some options:

1.  Google Classroom - If you're using Google Classroom, there's an option on Assignments to make a copy of a file for each student.  It's super easy and it will name each document with the student's name.

2.  Force "Make a Copy" - In the spring I blogged a trick for forcing a copy of a document.  Some OC Taylor teachers used this for sharing Plan, Do, Study, Act documents.  View that blog post here:  http://gcisdleadwithtechnology.blogspot.com/2015/01/make-copy-of-google-doc-for-each.html

What do you think?  What other forms would you like for your students to use?  I'd love to add things to my sample notebook!
