Electronic gradebooks are the technological answer to calculating grades in a swift and efficient manner. These modern marvels make the end of the term a much less stressful time of the year. But electronic gradebooks do a lot more than make grading time simpler--they are useful tools all year round.

Electronic Gradebooks Make Grade Analysis Easy

Electronic gradebooks really are unbelievably helpful if you're the kind of teacher who wants to stay on top of your students' performance. Looking at the endless columns and rows of student grades without a calculator on hand isn't very productive. If those columns and rows are on a computer screen, however, it's a different story.

Once the student data has been entered into the electronic grading program, it can be analyzed in any fashion you please. You can determine an individual student's grade, the class average on tests, or the average student grade for each separate class. All these calculations can be done at the touch of a button.

It's easy to see how electronic gradebooks can be a teacher's best friend. They come in mighty handy during parent-teacher conferences and even handier if you need to report on student performance to an administrator. If you want to stay informed, electronic gradebooks are a wise investment.
