Educators will find it easy to put their assignments and grades in categories and manage their classes. The app features support for both weighted and standard, point-based grade scales. It also allows teachers to award extra credit and deduct penalty points. The assignment list generates average scores per assignment allowing teachers to monitor the overall class performance on each assignment.
GradeBook Pro automatically calculates the student grade, highest grade, category-specific grades, and the total point score for students. Teachers can even change grades on a student-by-student basis, making for an easy, customized management experience for every user.
Attendance can be tracked for various classes and terms, and the attendance record taken by the app can be emailed to students and parents or school administrators. It can also be easily turned into a PDF or exported via a CSV file.
See student photos on the main classroom view and while recording grades, behavior, or attendance. To add photos for students, the app allows users to take photos or assign photos from the device’s library to each student.
The app features other useful qualities to handle classroom data including the ability to copy categories, grade scales, assignments, or students from one section to another. For multiple sections of the same class, teachers can copy entire classes, which will carry over the set assignments and categories.
The app allows for teachers to email all types of data, so they may inform students or parents of their progress in the class. Grades, attendance, status, notes, and missing grades can all be exported easily by email through the application, making GradeBook Pro a great, interactive app for keeping teachers on top of their students’ activities as well as able to include parents or alert students for a better learning experience.
