Online Grade Systems

Online Grade Systems

One of the things that has changed in almost every school is the availability of grading information. With the advent of online grades, parents and students have nearly immediate access to relevant information. Standard uses for these systems include:

  • Online grade book entry for teachers, and
  • Student and parent access to information about grades

Some tips to consider, however, include:

  • Configure your grade book correctly Know what scales you wish to use, how points are calculated, and double-check that the system is calculating the grades as you expect. Oftentimes guidance counselors or technology staff can help you with issues.
  • Update grades often Gone are the days when teachers could allow grading information to pile up on their desks. Parents and students want access to current grade information, and a weekly update is good practice to keep everyone informed.
