What is DocAppender?
Allows you to collect data via a Google Form, and append it to an existing Google Doc
appears as bulleted list or a table.
Enables you to create and link a Google Drive folder to an existing document.
Works on a spreadsheet that contains Google Form data and provides users with a web app where they can easily select which document they want to append to. Takes a google form submission (which is collected on a spreadsheet) and adds it to the bottom of the document.
Useful for
logging meeting takeaways or
keeping running records on teacher or student files.
DocAppender is very mobile friendly, as all usage involves URLs that can be loaded in a smartphone or tablet.
DocAppender Uses:
In this tutorial you will see docAppender used for building a simple behavior logging and reporting system. Teachers and staff will be able to submit behavioral incidents through a Google Form linked to a Google Spreadsheet. DocAppender will take each incident that gets submitted and append it to the bottom of a student’s behavior case file in Google Docs.

What I really like about DocAppender for
Peer Assessment

The evaluation is pasted in the bottom of the document.
Papers often get lost, left in lockers, and having the comments in the documents for reference if students want to work on this outside of class time is great.
Using a form submission helps marginalize bias from other assessors.
I have students print out two copies of essays, but if there is one rubric that has already been filled in or highlighted at the bottom of the document, the peer might give a similar evaluation.
Class sharing for peer review in Doctopus makes too many documents.
For other apps, such as Doctopus, frequent users know if you give the entire class viewing or commenting rights on each other's document, everyone's incoming folder in Google Drive gets flooded with copies of these documents of their classmates.
Thank you to Gary Johnston:
As a student behavior reporting tool that appends each behavioral incident to a student’s case file
