Summary

Built for teachers - show students' history of edits in a Google Doc

Revision History helps teachers see students' process when they write essays in Google Docs. It is meant to help teachers guide their students through revisions as well as to ensure that students are not just copy/pasting text from AI/LLMs/ChatGPT or other sources.

With Revision History, you can see:

  • How many edits students made to their essays
  • How long they spent writing
  • What snippets they copy/pasted
  • Watch a video replaying the document being written (NEW - in beta)

It also works with documents submitted to Google Classroom (as long as they were drafted in Google Docs).

User reviews
As a teacher, coming across this has been a game changer. It is much better that alternatives I have tried on Chrome as the summary of copy/pastes and writing sessions offers the perfect snapshot. Whilst it would be great to get this info above the Doc in Classroom instead of opening it as a Doc, imagine that this is a limitation of Classroom and not the extension (though by all means consider this a feature request if it is possible!). Thanks for the great extension, much appreciated.
