Our gradebook saves you time when grading.

It is a control center with access to various areas of your classroom without leaving the gradebook.

How to setup a Gradebook

  1. Create a class
  2. Create coursework
  3. Build class roster. Note: It's best to ask students to join the class. That way students can securely access their grades online.
  4. Enter grades:
    1. From top menu, select "Classroom", "Grades", then select a class from the drop-down list.
    2. To enter grades for a coursework, click on the coursework title in gradebook or select coursework from the drop-down list.

Note: Grading can be done quickly and consistently by attaching a rubric to coursework. Scores are automatically calculated and entered into your gradebook.

To use rubrics for grading, please see Coursework assessment with rubrics.
