Using Gradebook

When you first use WebGradebook, a spreadsheet called “Main spreadsheet” is created, with 10 columns. Each class has its own set of spreadsheets.

You can have up to 10 spreadsheets. Each spreadsheet can have up to 100 columns. Columns can be weighted and organized into groups.

Special Gradebook codes.

If a student is excused from handing in an assignment or writing a quiz, type in the code “EXC” for excused.

You may use the defined letter grades at your school for marking an assignment, for example assigning the letter grade “A” to a test.  The average of the low % and high % of the letter grade will be used to calculating the average mark.  This average will be scaled based on the maximum score of that assignment.

For example, if an “A” letter grade is defined with the low % = 90 and a high % = 100, and the column’s maximum value is out of 20.  The calculation would be:((90 + 100) / 2)  / 100) * 20 = 19

Therefore, on this assignment an “A” will count as 19/20 towards the average mark.

Any other codes you type in which are not pre-defined by the school will count as zero towards the mark.  This allows teachers to give a short description of why a student may have received a zero.

For example, you can use “ABS” for Absent, “NHI” for “Not Handed In”, etc.  If you are publishing marks to parents, they will see the mark of zero followed by the code. IE: 0 (NHI)
