Gradebook Update – Quick Grade Entry Options

We just updated Gradebook for Professors. The really exciting new feature is that you can now set a “default” grade entry method that includes a Quick Alpha option and a Quick Numeric Option.

If you have the “Quick Alpha” option selected, whenever you tap on an option that allows you to enter a grade, it will bring up a dialogue box that let’s you easily select A-F (and any plus/minus variant). Tap the grade and it submits it and brings you back.

What this means: Massively quicker grading sessions!!!

Enjoy!

Two Exciting Things Coming to Gradebook

GradebookWe just wanted to let everyone know that two very exciting things are in the works for our Gradebook application.

Major Overhaul
First we’ve been working on a major overhaul incorporating many of your helpful suggestions. Setup is going to be drastically simpler. Entering grades is going to be even faster. We’ll announce a comprehensive list of new features in the very near future.

Free Version
We LOVE free software. You’ll note three of our four apps are free. We’ve decided that Gradebook should be free too. When we release the overhaul, we’ll release a free version too. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider buying the paid version now. The free version will be ad supported, and once we release it – the paid version will go up in price.

Stay tuned for more information about the major update to Gradebook. We promise it will blow you away.

Grade Book for Professors v2.5

Change-log:

  • We changed the way Google authorization works. When you open one of your grade books, the app will login and will save the authorization token. This authorization token is then used when you access a student grades, making this process significantly faster.
  • FEATURE: You can now select spreadsheet columns that are greater than column T.
  • FEATURE: Long-pressing on a student name gives you an option to edit their grade. We did this so you didn’t have to load each students grade report every time you wanted to edit a grade.
  • BUG FIX: Before, if you entered a spreadsheet name or display name with a single quote ( ‘ ) the app would crash. This was due to the way we were storing data to MySQL. You can now add grade books with a single quote in the name.
