An electronic gradebook is a digital version of a traditional paper gradebook allowing teachers to record and track student grades for assignments. Electronic gradebooks may be online or software-based with various features depending on the specific product.
An electronic gradebook offers teachers a flexible way to enter assignments for tracking grades and student progress. Many gradebook programs allow the user to customize the grading scale or adjust the weights for select assignments. The programs calculate and update each student's overall grades as new assignments are entered. Teachers save time by allowing the program to handle these calculations. An electronic gradebook also commonly offers statistics and data to help teachers track trends in student learning and progress.
