Automated Gradebooks

It's possible to set up your gradebook to display the "grade as of today" for your students, with only minimal changes needed week by week from the instructor.

To enable this, you must know the points given for each individual assignment (rather than just the semester-end "weight" of each category). Then, after you set up the gradebook, your weekly tasks will be:

  1. enter raw score grades for this week's assignment(s)
  2. change the "divided by" number on the semester-percentage column

Everything else should update itself. What your students will see is a column for Total Points, a column for Total Percent, and a column for "Letter Grade as of Today"

Video Example

Here is a video example (17 minutes) that talks you through the process to configure your own gradebook.
