Receive Daily Spreadsheet Edit Agenda

Teachers you can receive a daily notifications agenda when students make changes to a collaborative Google spreadsheet. What is the value? If students are working as small groups on projects you can see who contributed information.  The email provides a list of the Student and the time the edits occurred in a daily agenda notification. All the teacher has to do is go into the spreadsheet then look at the Revision History to see exactly what the students typed. It gives a whole new perspective on assessing student’s work.
