Automatically Grade your Pear Deck with Flubaroo

After you gather student responses during class, you can export them to Google Sheets and use the free Google Add-on, Flubaroo, to generate and email grade reports.



  1. Create your Deck. Auto grading works best on questions with an exact right answer, as opposed to open-ended questions. We recommend multiple choice or number questions. Text-based questions can work if there is a very specific right answer, or if you want to use the Grade by Hand option.
  2. Present your Deck and gather student responses
  3. Create an answer key by responding to your own questions as a student. Open another tab or window on your own device and join the Session as a student. Answer all of the questions correctly. You'll set these as an answer key later.
  4. Save the Session. End your session by clicking the 3-dot icon on the navigation bar. Be sure to give the session a clear name, like "Spanish Unit 1 Quiz". It will be time stamped, so there's no need to add the date.
  5. Export Answers. Find the Deck in your home screen. Click on the Deck title. In the new menu, find the Session you saved. Click the 3-dot icon next to the session name, then Export to Spreadsheet.
  6. Get Flubaroo. It's easy and free! With your Google Sheet open, click Add-ons. Then choose Get Add-ons. Search for and select Flubaroo.
  7. Grade Assignment. Once Flubaroo is installed, click Add-ons again. Hover over Flubaroo, then choose Grade Assignment. Follow Flubaroo's instructions.
  8. Send a Report to Students. When the grades are calculated, go back up to the same Add-ons > Flubaroo menu and choose Share Grades. You can share via email, Google Drive, or both.
