    Linking Gradebooks can be very effective when classes are exactly the same. It cuts down on the time you have to spend entering assignments for classess with same assignments, tests, and projects. It is very important that they are exactly the same.

    Posted by Mark Rasmussen on 6/25/2015

    In your gradebook you will have categories like homework, quizzess, tests, projects, and other assignments. You can set them up as you like. When you setup categories you can also choose to have weighted scores. For example you can make tests worth more than homework.

  • Adding Your Students into Your Class

    Posted by Mark Rasmussen on 6/24/2015

    A gradebook is very useful without one key ingredient. Students! You will be going through this process several times throughout the school year as students enter and leave and possibly return to your class. The process is rather simple. One thing to watch out for is when to set the enter date for when a student comes in after the semester has started.

  • Adding Assignments to Your Gradebook

    Posted by Mark Rasmussen on 6/23/2015

    If you are following this day by day you should be ready to add assignments to your gradebook. When you are adding an assignment the one mistake that even veteran teachers make is when they forget to mark the assignment as "Grading Completed." With the new gradebook you can take care of this when you create the assignment.

  • Adding Scores to Your Students' Assignments

    Posted by Mark Rasmussen on 6/22/2015

    After this final step you should have a good start for the semester as far as the Aeries HTML 5 Gradebook. There is still a long ways to go but hopefully you are off to a good start. A good resource for learning will be\aeries. Probably, a better resource is another teacher on campus who has been using the gradebook for a while.

    This part is about adding scores to students. There are several ways to add scores to students. I find the best way to add scores is By Assignment. This allows me to put in comments that can offer encouragement to the students.
