    Thanks for the updates and I am loving the app.
    If I may make one suggestion for a future release, if you could add the option of viewing/editing grades from an assignment screen.
    I tend to grade the same assignment for all of my students at the same time and enter that grade at the same time.
    In the present configuration I have to go in and out of each student’s profile too many times to make it useful.

    I have considered reversing the list of assignments with the list of students to see what would happen, since that is the most useful method for me.

    Jim,

    We might not have publicized this feature as well as we should have, but when you are at the screen that lists all the students in the class, you can long press on a student’s name and select “edit grade”.

    This saves you from having to click on a student, have the app collect all of their grades, click the “edit grade” button, enter the grade, press back to get back to your list of students, and then repeat this for the next student.

    This still might not be ideal, but hopefully this makes using the app easier until we get the “Grade Session” feature implemented.

    Thanks for all the good feedback! We will keep you posted about the “Grade Session” feature.

    Ah, I see you’ve already had this suggestion on the v2.5 comments and it is in the works.
    Thanks.
