This Technology "Tuesday" tutorial comes from one of the winners of my 500 follower giveaway, Katie. She requested that I blog about how to use technology to efficiently manage grades, anecdotal records, assessments, etc.! I personally don't do anecdotes digitially anymore. I did one year, and I had some issues with it, as one set of parents felt that the fact that the digital anecdotes could have been typed/retyped/embellished at any point without any difficulty. It really made me think, and now I do it all handwritten! Anyway, I'm going to blog about how to technology to manage grades/assessments via a digital gradebook!
First things first, I uploaded the digital gradebook onto TPT. There are two options for download, one is color coded, while the other is black and white. They're both available by clicking the picture below:
Personally, I use the color coded option, because I like to see the "bell curve" of my classroom. However, if you have to print your grade book out regularly (to give to your administrator) or if you prefer the black/white, you can use that one as well!
Now... onto some info about how to use the document!
