rowCall

Google Sheets Add-On
rowCall sorts rows from your main sheet by the column you select and creates individual sheets for every unique cell in that column.

rowCall filters rows from your main Google Sheet by whatever column you select and then creates individual sheets for every unique cell in that column. This calls the rows out into their own space. If the automatic setting is enabled, any new entry or alteration to the main sheet, manual or form driven, will be fed to the individual sheets.

It can be used for a variety of purposes, such using a Google Form for assessments or self assessment. For example; each week students complete a self-assessment rubric form, the form is completed by all students in the class sending the results to the form response sheet. A teacher can then use the rowCall Add-on to create a separate sheet for each student and quickly view their individual entries in addition to the whole class summary of results from the form response sheet. Each new form entry will go to the form response sheet as well as each individual sheet if the automatic setting is enabled, thus providing a master sheet of the whole class scores each time a form entry is made and auto updating the individual sheets with their scores.

Highlight Tool

Google Doc Add-On
More functionality than the highlighter that comes in Google Docs because you can create, label and share customized highlighters. Save highlighted text to a separate document.

Create and edit customized highlighters that automatically save. Use these highlighters to highlight selected text. Export the highlighted text to a separate document by sequence or by color. "Highlight Tool" is not specific to but can be used to organize essays, categorize ideas, or emphasize important facts. The highlighters on the sidebar allow users to easily highlight selected text as well as understand what the meaning of those colors. "Highlight Tool" also enables its users to share a set of personalized, self-created highlighters with other users. These allow multiple users (especially teachers and students) to be on the same page and use the same highlighters and guidelines! Thus, this add-on allows for efficient communication of ideas especially in a school environment.
