Google Classroom gets Classwork View, Locked Quizzes and more features

Google has come up with innovative update for its Classroom app by which users get more control over the way they organise everything, including assignments, announcements, and class rosters. 

Google says that it is the same
Classroom that teachers are familiar with, but has been redesigned to help both teachers and students "find what they need quickly." Search giant will also be adding a new feature to Quizzes that lets teachers control what students can see when taking assessments in Forms. 

Felix Emiliano, Software Engineer, Google Classroom, says in a blog post "Teachers love the class Stream, and the speed of adding new content. But, as teachers and students added more posts to Classroom, they struggled to find content, and spent too much time scrolling through the Stream."

Emiliano further adds " This makes the Stream a better conversational hub, where teachers can notify their students about upcoming deadlines, post announcements and more. Students can also comment on posts, creating a virtual forum in Classroom,"

Google Classroom will soon offer a 'locked mode' for quizzes in Google Forms. It has been designed to keep students "focused and distraction-free during tests and quizzes," as the locked mode prevents students from navigating away from the quiz until they hit the button to submit their answers. 

Teachers will get with the ability to create a quiz right from Classroom, instead of the Google Forms app. Notably, you will have to sign up to test the new Classroom features.
